Garlic in containers - indoor and/or outdoor
So, I told myself i'd plant some garlic this year, and I just got around to sticking a few cloves in containers for the winter. I am using apx 1" deep 3 gal containers for 3-4 cloves. We'll see what happens. But I brought the containers inside to plant (cause it's cold out), and now with the days so short its dark when I get home and haven't gotten chance to cover them with mulch and set outside yet.
This got me to thinking: perhaps I could also try growing some indoors over the winter? As an experiment? If I leave them by the patio window they'll get sun but remain cool, and I might be able to take them outside in the spring.
I will try both (some outdoor, some indoor) and see what happens.
Any suggestions? I'm not entirely sure what variety is it, but purpleish, and grown organic in Ontario.
