    For example, I noticed that if winter garlic is planted at the end of autumn, then no matter how fruitful the variety is and no matter how I “charge” the soil (using everything I can, right up to the mineral water), in the spring all cloves sprout. And the place is then empty on the garden, although every centimeter of land in the garden is registered! But on the “bald spots” among the garlic, what then can I plant? So you're worried about such mismanagement. And although everything seems to be not my fault, it is still unpleasant.

    And I finally came up with this thing.
    In the late autumn I select the strongest and largest chives of garlic, soak them in a weak solution of potassium permanganate, rinse thoroughly with running water, dry them and immediately wrap them in dry rags.
    Then I wrap these nodules in a film and put them in a black cellophane bag, which I bury on the bed, and leave the pens from this bag to stick out. And next, for fidelity, I also stick some kind of stick - an extra landmark will not hurt.
    I cover the ground around the "stash" with old grass and leave everything in this form until spring.
    And at the beginning of the season, as soon as the snow melts completely, I pull the package out of the ground by the handles, unwrap the nodules and pull out the teeth that have already sprouted, with pretty roots.

    Then I immediately plant them on the garden bed. "Propleins" among the landings are not, yields are good.
    In the same way, by the way, I germinate carrot seeds, I just drop them in the spring and just for a week. And then they are very convenient to plant, because on the background of the earth, these seedlings are clearly visible.

    Spring planting of winter garlic is most likely an exception to the rules that require it to be done in the fall, a couple of weeks before the onset of frost. However, if you didn’t have time for planting last year or after winter there were excess garlic heads, then you can try to get a harvest from them by planting cloves in the spring. But this requires appropriate training.
    Not less than a month before planting, the heads of garlic are taken into slices, cleaned of scales and immediately soaked in any growth-promoting solution for 8-10 hours.

    After that, it is necessary to moisten with water a soft cloth, squeeze and fold the garlic cloves into it, wrap and put in a plastic bag, leaving it ajar. And then the garlic packaged in this way must be placed in the refrigerator. It is impossible that the fabric dries out, it should be periodically moistened with water. Within a month, roots with a length of up to 5 cm will appear on garlic cloves.
    As soon as the earth warms up, it will be possible to begin landing. On the garden make grooves about 10 depth cm, in them spread out the sprouted teeth and fill with humus.
    When the garlic has risen, feed the plants with azofosca and potassium magnesia. After rains and watering between the rows of garlic be sure to loosen. In early June, it is useful to feed garlic with a solution of mullein or chicken manure. During the summer, it is recommended to feed garlic twice with mineral fertilizers.

    In such garlic, in contrast to what was planted in the fall, the growing season will increase by about a month, but its heads will be larger.

    I can’t grow good garlic. Maybe the reason for this is acidic soil?

      Garlic, like onions, is very sensitive to the increased acidity of the soil. In this case, the supply of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, molybdenum, boron and some other elements to plants decreases. Therefore, the best for garlic are sandy and loamy soils with a neutral reaction.
      The increased acidity of the soil in the area is indicated by plants growing on it - horsetail, horse sorrel, plantain, mint.
      Even a slight increase in soil acidity harms the garlic. In that
      If the leaves become shallow, the color becomes light green, the tops turn yellow, and the harvest is reduced. Heavy, floating clayey soils, on which a peel is easily formed, are unsuitable for growing garlic. Garlic grows well on flood plains and drained peatlands, but ripening is delayed and the bulbs are not stored for a long time.
      Strongly acidic soils must be limed, and this should be done better under the previous culture. Lime, along with manure or mineral fertilizers, should not be added, as this increases nitrogen losses and decreases the assimilability of phosphorus compounds by plants.

      If necessary, deoxidize the soil immediately before planting garlic using wood ash. The calcium content in it, depending on the origin, ranges from 8 to 80%. In addition, ash is a valuable fertilizer containing a large amount of potassium, phosphorus and trace elements.
      Potassium in the ash is present in the form of carbonate or potash, which dissolves well in water and is easily washed out of the soil. As the main nutrient elements, ash does not contain only nitrogen; an aqueous solution of ash has alkaline properties; therefore, its use is quite effective on acidic and potassium-poor sandy and sandy, marsh and meadow soils, as well as on drained peatlands.
      Cause of crop failure can be an imbalance of nutrients in the soil. If the garlic lacks any nutritional element or the required ratio between them is disturbed, the plants suffer, the harvest and its quality are reduced. Fertilizing garlic is necessary not only on poor soils, but also on soils rich in nutrient reserves. 8 anyway should follow the recommendations of experts.

    Often, even before the New Year, garlic heads begin to germinate and, I know from experience, they cannot be stopped.
    But until the green feather reached 1 cm, garlic is still edible. Therefore, I try to use it faster or put trays on the 8 greens. The teeth that begin to dry and germinate can be scrolled through a meat grinder, put into ice trays and frozen. Then pour ice garlic cubes into a bag and store in the freezer. When necessary, simply add the cube's 1-2 to the cooked dish.
    You can put the chopped garlic in a jar and pour it on top.
    some vegetable oil. If you spread this mass on bread, it turns out very tasty and healthy!

    Or cook garlic oil: crush (crush!) 5-7 cloves and pour 0,5 l of sunflower oil. You can also chop the garlic and dry. Then grind on a coffee grinder and use as seasoning, where you need fresh garlic, for example, in minced meat for chops.

    Many gardeners, especially beginners, are concerned about the question: what to do with sprouted garlic? Often it happens that even before the onset of winter, garlic cloves begin to sprout or deteriorate: they dry up, grow moldy, and at high humidity they rot.

    I want to immediately warn you: no longer stop beginning to germinate garlic. Therefore, if this happens to me, I do this: garlic, which begins to dry and sprout, pass through a meat grinder, put into ice cube molds and freeze. Then garlic "ice" just pour in a bag and store in the freezer of the refrigerator. Such cubes can be added to many dishes during their preparation.
    You can do differently. Put the chopped garlic in a jar and pour a small amount of vegetable oil on top. It is good to spread bread with this mixture.
    I also advise you to cook garlic oil. To do this, crush (pinch) 5-7 teeth and place such cake in a half-liter bottle of sunflower oil. It will get a pleasant taste of garlic and give it to cooked dishes.
    And finally, chop the garlic and dry. Then grind on a coffee grinder and use as seasoning, for example, add to the meat for meatballs.
