Garlic, Organic Growing and Maintenance Tips

It is important to have a free draining soil. Excellent drainage is very important to give the edge on climate and disease. Garlic grows best on friable (crumbly) loamy soils that are fertile and high in organic matter. Gardeners who can grow onions can grow garlic since the culture is similar. Garlic does well with high amounts of fertilizer.
