Autumn planting garlic is easy to grow in a sunny position with well-drained soil. Water and feed your garlic, and keep the area around your crop weed free. Remember to water your garlic during dry periods but stop watering completely during the last few weeks prior to harvesting. In February, apply a high potash fertilizer to your garlic; this will give it all the nutrients it needs to grow wonderfully.

Autumn planting garlic will tell you when it’s time to be harvested. Lift hardneck varieties when the leaves start to change colour and softneck varieties when the leaves go floppy and lie on the ground. Leave your garlic to dry on the ground if the weather is fine but bring it into a greenhouse or shed to dry if rain threatens.
