I planted 75 cloves of garlic last fall. It gave me a pretty good harvest. There were a few more rotted coves than usual, but my main wish is that I had more heads. I’ve had years when my harvest lasts til April. I was jealous to read a blog where the gardener planted 500 cloves of garlic!! Wow. This fall again I planted 75 cloves. I’ll have to think about a way to plant more next fall. I would need to use a second bed. Just over 100 cloves would be nice.
I used to plant 100 cloves, but they were smaller and I planted them closer together. I have a real nice seed stock from Territorial now, mostly Music, and it is big and takes up more space.
