Just a quick update.
This morning I planted some Garlic that I was given by one of the guys at work. He didn’t have space to plant the last bulb in his patch so rather than throw it out he gave it to me. The bulb was split up on into cloves on the bin and now I’m planting it.
I’m not sure what variety the Garlic is, The chap at work did say but I didn’t write it down and… Yep, I forgot it before I got home. >.>
While using some string to mark a line I dug a light trench, one trowel wide and planted in the cloves 6 inches apart and just below the soil line. I then lightly covered the cloves with a sprinkle of soil and we are done.
According to the RHS site I don’t need to water these in… Considering how bloody wet its been of late I can see why! Since I turned it all over the other day, the soil is also quite free draining so I don’t think they will stay too wet.
I really feel I am making a start on my own veg plot… It’s kinda exciting!
