Transcript of Garlic
Garlic can be planted in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked, but fall planting is recommended for most gardeners. ...
In areas that get a hard frost, plant garlic as early as 6 to 8 weeks before the first expected fall frost date, before the ground freezes.
One diseases (control/prevention)
Garlic is used for many conditions related to the heart and blood system. These conditions include high blood pressure, low blood pressure, high cholesterol, inherited high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, heart attack, reduced blood flow due to narrowed arteries, and "hardening of the arteries" (atherosclerosis).
One insect (control/prevention)
Insects are naturally repulsed by the presence of the botanical extract. Therefore, they do not build up a resistance to garlic treatments.
Space the cloves 4-6" apart. Rows should be spaced one foot apart. The cloves should be planted with the pointed end up and the blunt end down. Push each clove 1-2" into the ground, firm the soil around it, and water the bed if it is dry.
History of garlic
Garlic has been revered as an offering fit for the gods and despised as a substance suitable only to be fed to hogs. For over 5,000 years garlic has been used as food, medicine, an aphrodisiac, money, and magic potions. Garlic warded off the evil eye, was hung over doors to protect medieval occupants from evil, gave strength and courage to Greek athletes and warriors, protected maidens and pregnant ladies from evil nymphs, and was rubbed on door frames to keep out blood thirsty vampires.
Around mid June, hard neck garlic varieties send up a round stalk or scape.The main harvest is when the underground bulbs are dug, cured and stored for fall and winter use.
