I'm looking to plant a bit of garlic around my roses for insect control (not necessarily harvesting). Question is, do you just take garlic from your kitchen and put it in the ground?? I have some garlic in my fridge forming green tops right now (so I won't be cooking with them). I understand it's best to plant them in the fall, but alas. It's March, and I'm working on my rose beds.
How tall can I expect the garlic to grow? I saw a reference to a 2' tall garlic plant, that's taller than my roses!
Just some basics for a newbie, please. Thanks in advance.
