I have one head of Cherokee & would like to make the best of it. Could you tell me how you grow it.

I think it's a wild garlic that makes very small heads with mild-flavored cloves. Because it's so small, it should do well at close, 3-inch spacing.

It is 1 1/2 inches wide, has at least 8 cloves in it.
I have only one head, that is why I am asking about planting it.
I bought it from
I have wild garlic growing on my 10 acres & do not like the taste of it.
