    Winter garlic pleased. We've had it for many years, I don't know the name. I have been planting in front of the Intercession in the same place for twenty years and only with large teeth, slightly pressing. The distance between the rows is 20 cm, in a row 10. I cover with coniferous litter, fertilize with ash. I choose before the day of Peter and Paul, July 12. Garlic I have always good, large. And in general, the past season was fruitful for many crops, almost everything was born.

    garlic generally turned out to be planted only in early December. With difficulty, she picked off the upper frozen layer of soil on the bed with a flat cutter, and with freezing hands, Grisha and I (the oldest child, he was seven years old) thrust the cloves into deep narrow pits, which we made with a stick. It’s a pity I can’t find a photo of how we plant garlic in the dark with falling snow ...
    They thickly mulched the top - they took a car of spoiled silage from the farm, which they were going to take out anyway, and brought it to us. And this spring, garlic still appeared! But before planting, in order to have time to take root, it was germinated in tissue in a saucepan with water at the bottom in the refrigerator, so that the temperature difference was small after the house compared to the cold earth.

    This year there was no phytophthora at all, and the onion did not get sick with peronosporosis, it was born good, like garlic. The Exhibiting onion also grew excellent: in the spring it also grew under the covering material so that the seedlings would not burn out from the scorching sun.

    When planting winter garlic, I never deepen it. I plant at the end of September in the garden, where I make four longitudinal rows. The distance between the teeth is 10-15 cm. Why don't I deepen it? And the garlic itself will go to the desired depth. It sometimes happens that it rises even before the frost, but this does not affect its quality in any way later.

    I came to the conclusion: the smaller you plant, the larger the garlic will be.
    I never fertilize or water it - I learned this from my grandfather. He also advised to rake the soil from the heads two or three weeks before harvesting. And I always have garlic of wonderful quality and size. Yes! Here's another thing: many plant the largest cloves, and I, on the contrary, the smallest.
