|Poor girl. Forgot to take off her mascara and woke up with garlic head.|
Get all those sprouted garlics from your fridge! Plant them pointy side up. That's about it! If they flower, break it off and dig them in the Spring when they start to die.
The garlic will thank you if you bury them in loose, rich soil. That they grow in rocky, sandy soil and don't like fertilizer is folklore. Same with herbs. If you want a lot of basil you must feed it. Rosemary and lavender are about the only herbs that can take that kind of abuse. Garlic can't.
There's a weird truth about growing garlic that I still can't explain...
