Garlic is booming in popularity in kitchens and gardens as Americans learn how easy growing this tasty bulb can be. Abundant garlic harvests don’t take much expertise — even beginners can grow these nutritious homegrown treats. Just a few simple steps, and you’re on your way to enjoying homegrown garlic and heady harvests. It’s generally best to buy your planting garlic from local garden companies so the varieties will suit your climate. Supermarket garlic can work, but it often comes from California or overseas and doesn’t do well in garden plantings outside those areas.
