spring planting garlic?

margeneJanuary 9, 2007

I missed planting my garlic last fall due to illness. Still have the sets. Should I plant them this spring. This is zone 4, almost 5.

I would plant them now if you can work the soil. Your cloves may not make it until Spring, and besides, Spring planting yields much smaller bulbs.

I planted mine in the spring the first year and they are a bit smaller but it'sbetter than nothing. Save some of the larger ones from that and replant next Oct.
