What temperature does garlic need to grow?
Also question is, what conditions does garlic need to grow?
Garlic grows best in fertile, well drained soil with a near neutral pH. If your soil is clay, rake up raised rows or mounds for garlic to insure good drainage during the cold, clammy days of winter. Plant cloves 4 inches (10 cm) deep and 6 inches (15 cm) apart.
One may also ask, how long does garlic take to grow? nine months
Also Know, how cold can garlic tolerate?
When properly planted, garlic can withstand winter lows of -30°F. If planted too early, too much tender top growth happens before winter.
How do you know when garlic is ready to harvest?
Garlic bulbs are ready to harvest in late spring or summer, from seven to eight months after they are planted. The outward signs are the green leaves, which will begin to turn brown, and the flower stems – if present – which will begin to soften, although staying green.
