Choose an open, sunny site and well-drained soil. High humidity around the foliage and wet soils make the crop more prone to disease, particularly if planted in the autumn.
Garlic does not thrive on acid soils (below pH 6.5). Reduce acidity by applying lime in autumn and winter.
Prior to planting, improve the soil’s structure, moisture retention and nutrient levels by incorporating organic matter. Apply about two bucketfuls of well-rotted manure or other organic matter such as garden compost every square metre (yard). Avoid using fresh manure.
Planting distance Plant 15cm (6in) apart and leave 30cm (1ft) between rows.
