Ive tried soooooo hard to grow garlic. Ive planted different times of year. I get the long, green leaf shoots, which is fine because i like the smell and have used them in cooking, but those seem to die off really quick. I have never gotten a flower which is what i was actually planting them for. That and the smell is supposed to keep away certain insects.

Too bad you haven't had the flower you've hoped for, but I bet you still keep away insects. Don't give up! Every year is different. Last year my lettuce and Kale was amazing, but we harvested hardly any potatoes from a lot of plants.

I'm really interested in growing garlic,[gourmet} to sale. I've ordered the bulbs,and only hope I'm getting what they say I'm getting! I live in Chattanooga Tennessee and was wanting to get advice on when I should plant my bulbs. Can anyone give me advice on anything? I've got plenty of land, 60 acres to be exact and the place I planned on planting, is my daddy's garden, which is already in good shape as far as being good rich soil with good drainage and only organically grown vegetables have been raised there. So, if there is anybody to help me with this, I'd certainly be grateful. Thank-You
