* Garlic is planted as cloves from an existing garlic plant. The timing is looser than for many vegetables because it is planted the fall before in colder climates or in the winter/spring in warmer climates. Because it can be stored in a cool, dark place for an extended period, you can grow up to an entire year's worth of garlic yourself.
