Growing Garlic, Harvesting Garlic, Planting Garlic, Garlic Scapes Garlic Garlic has the ability to repel airborne and soilborne pests. It deters beetles, spider mites and fruit flies.

Growing garlic from bulbils. I may have to try this with some of the hard neck garlic I bought to plant this fall. It sounds like 1 or 2 is all it takes to get a large amount of cloves in 2-3 years that are adapted to your microclimate.
Famous for its tender, melt-in-your-mouth flesh, the medium-sized, smooth-skinned 'Carola' potato is a good choice for container growing if you have limited garden space. You can grow your own from organic seed potatoes but place your order early because many specialty growers like Renee's Garden , Filaree Garlic Farm , and Irish Eyes Garden Seeds sell out before the season even begins.
