Garlic: Plant Short, Harvest Long

There is a gardening tradition that says,

“Plant Garlic on the shortest day, harvest on the longest day.”

In this video I speak with Natasha Edwards of The Garlic Farm. We cover everything from choosing the right bulbs through to planting and harvesting. Unlike most gardening advice on this topic you’ll be surprised by how deep the garlic bulbs are planted on the farm.

Many thanks to The Garlic Farm
