Soil and Temperature
Whether you’re growing garlic in the garden or in pots, good soil is key. In the garden, dig in rich organic materials such as well-rotted manure (or sheep pellets), seaweed and compost. Garlic is a heavy feeder so your soil needs to be bursting with goodness. Avoid planting your garlic in a space where a heavy feeder has just been.
Planting your garlic in autumn before the cold of winter means the cloves will establish strong roots. The coldness of the coming winter then puts the garlic into a dormant state and it’s this cold period that actually stimulates the individual bulb formation.
