I'm just a little confused on the year to bear for the garlic. It says 1-2 years. I'd like to plant this fall. Would there be any ready by summer or would it take longer?
KELLIE C on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Fall is by far the best time to plant garlic. You'll have a crop next summer, and if don't pull it all up for curing, it will come back again the following year.
what is the yield of 0.5 lb garlic at harvest?
CYRIAC K on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. You should get 2 to 2-1/2 lbs. of garlic from 1/2 lb. of sets. That is presuming good sun, good soil and good fertilizer.
