Too Late for garlic?

Is it too late to plant garlic? I am in the Sierra foothills, zone 8.

Nope, good to plant until at least December or Jan.

The later you plant, the smaller the garlic head. So, plant asap.

Whenever my store bought garlic starts to grow, I plant the cloves. I plant all year. Never had a problem here in zone 9-a. My biggest problem was for years I lived in a HOA, and the workers would steal my drying garlic that I hung in the bougainvillaea bushes!

Nice to know about garlic. I decided last week-end that I should start growing my own garlic, and I think I will follow the suggestion of planting anything that has green sprouts. I still have some garlic that I got at a Farmers' Market (Mar Vista), and so I will plant some of that.

Does garlic need any special soil requirements? I have some Society Garlic in my yard, and so I assume if that does okay that regular garlic should as well. Should I plant it in pots to get better soil/drainage? My soil does not drain well.
