This is How You Can Grow Garlic in Your Home

Garlic is one of the healthiest foods you can consume, and thankfully, many people cook with it regularly. But, constantly buying it, like many other herbs and vegetables that frequent your kitchen, can take a toll on your bank account in the long run. Want an alternative? It's time to learn how to grow your own garlic at home. You can actually grow garlic indoors, and it's pretty simple. You will need:
  • A head of garlic
  • Potting soil
  • A container
Here's what you'll need to do:
  • Fill a large pot with potting soil. Break garlic cloves apart and sow each clove vertically into the soil at a depth of 1 inch.
  • Cover all the cloves with soil. There should be about 1 inch of soil over all the cloves.
  • Place the pot in an area that gets plenty of direct sunlight.
  • Like any indoor plant, keep a eye on the soil and water it when it starts to dry out.
  • Clip off the greens when they are about 3 – 4 inches tall, leaving about an inch or so for it to re-grow. Eventually, the greens will stop growing.
  • When it turns brown and dries up, dig the clove of garlic you planted and you should have a full bulb. Take a clove from that and start over!
