How To Grow Garlic - A Simple Step-By-Step Guide To Planting, Growing, Harvesting, Curing & Storing Your Own Garlic

I’ve had so many requests for information about growing garlic, so I put together this little guide. It’s just 9 simple steps and when you’re done you’ll have the most delicious homegrown garlic.

If you don’t have a garden, check it out and then share with a friend who does. You might just be lucky enough to receive some of their homegrown garlic harvest. It’s that good!

Hope you enjoyed my guide to growing garlic. Now that you’re excited to plant, check out my DIY raised garden beds and my garlic scape and basil pesto recipe.

As always, let me know if you have any questions.
