Garlic has a savory, pungent flavor featured in dishes from around the world. It's popular for more than just its taste, as it also provides desirable health benefits, and eating more can offer benefits for your immune system.

You can find that garlic is surprisingly easy to grow on your own! By planting it in your garden, or growing your own garlic in containers, you can produce your own crop, and start adding it to the meals you prepare at home.


1. Preparing a Space for Your Garlic

Garlic is a forgiving crop, so you can be optimistic about its chances for growth even in an imperfect environment. Make sure the soil drains well, as too much water can be a problem. The amount of space you need will depend on how much you plant. Each bulb you plant should enjoy eight inches of space.
