Plant your best garlic cloves fuzzy butt down in your planting pots. The cloves should bulbs the size of the bulb they came off. This garlic should be planted in the fall so the root system has the opportunity to grow all winter. Come spring they will pop their head up and start growing the bulb. The rest can be learned later. There are many good web sites where you can learn from professional garlic growers how to determine when your garlic is ready for harvest.
The wonderful thing is you can plant your cloves now and after they start growing you can pull them up and use them as needed. I call this my green garlic. It's not ready as a mature bulb but it has tons of flavor. Wash well, chop finely and saute.
Thank you Mariah, I had a look now and 50 bulbs I planted last week is coming above ground, I'm very excited to get the end result and really appreciate your comment. Kind regards Annie

Very interesting question.Garlic cloves should be planted narrow end up. Garlic cloves are best planted between November and April, although you will generally get a bigger and better crop if you plant in the autumn.I presently work for a best essay writing service and I'm used to write some articles whenever I get some free time.You can reffer this site.
