Did I miss my window for planting Garlic?

Posted by britsurv Utah Z6 (My Page) on

I ordered some garlic seed online because it was on sale thinking that after I ordered it I would read up on planting and just generally learn more about growing garlic.

It was after I ordered that I realized it was probably too late to be planting.

So my question is what should I do with this garlic seed I ordered? I ordered the California Late White (softneck)

Obviously I am very new to gardening!

Thanks so much for any help/thoughts/tips

RE: Did I miss my window for planting Garlic?

You can plant garlic any time but they may not do so well. There is a very good instructional page by Utah State University on the subject, and here is the link:
I would suggest you start the seeds indoors in a sunny warm place, then transplant the seedlings to a row covered outdoor grow box in March making sure they are about three inches apart in we'll fertilized and composted soil.
