Plant as soon as possible in early spring once the soil is workable. Separate cloves from garlic bulb and plant pointed end up in a 4" deep hole. Space the cloves 6" apart in row, with 12" between rows. Pinch off any flowers that might develop as although they look nice they consume energy that should be going into the finished bulb size. AFTERCARE: Store garlic bulbs by roping or hanging in netted bags in a cool, frost free dry spot for use throughout the winter.
Fresh or cooked this is a versatile healthy flavorful vegetable. Good keeper for use throughout the winter. Can also be chopped and frozen for later use.

About Me Avid Gardener, Getting Started
Comments about American Meadows Garlic California Softneck - Package of 6:
I purchased 1 package of this garlic and planted it last fall in a raised bed amended with 50/50 topsoil and compost. The bed was approximately 4x3' and I spaced the garlic at about 6" apart, it filled the entire bed. Within a couple of weeks little green sprouts were all over the bed! I covered it with 6" of bark mulch for the winter and left it alone, having only watered it twice right after planting b/c the added soil was so dry after building the bed. It actually stayed green most of the winter and began vigorous growth the following spring. It began to die back the end of May/first of June and I harvested it and cured it. I just stored it this morning. I filled half of a mesh bag that I saved from a 5 lb bag of oranges purchased over the winter. I would estimate that I planted about 40 cloves and that all but a couple came up. We had some baby bunnies born in the bed and the mommy bunny nipped off some the garlic to build her den (the garlic was actually intact under the den and later harvested) and even with that we only lost a couple of plants (there were 2 spaces where the spacing was greater than the 6" I left between plants).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
