After you have amended your soil with compost and bone meal or soft rock phosphate, it is time to break apart the cloves. Select the biggest cloves to plant, and soak them in diluted liquid kelp (2-4 Tbs/gallon). You can also add 1 Tbs/gallon of baking soda to your liquid kelp. Soak overnight and plant immediately the next day. Don’t toss out the smaller cloves – grow them to use as garlic chives or garlic scallions. Add a layer of mulch to your garlic bed and you’re done!
