Step by step, Moreno shows how to plant this crop successfully.
Thanks to The Dutch Farmer for sharing his wisdom and knowledge! I wrote the following notes watching the video published on The Dutch Farmer’s channel. You can watch it using this YouTube link.
September: preparing the cloves
From your best garlic heads from last harvest (or from your organic store), break down the garlic into individual cloves.
October 25: planting
Prepare the soil in no dig. Below, bulk compost is used.
Space the cloves 5 cm to 10 cm from each other in rows of about 30 cm.

March 17: new garlic has come out
May 21st: garlic is at adult size
June 27th: harvest and set to dry
Around the beginning of the summer (end of June in the northern atmosphere), the garlic should be ready to harvest.
Then, set it put to dry under cover by hanging the garlic:
August 29th: garlic is ready
About 2 months later, garlic is dried …
August 30th: prepare for storage
… and it is ready to be stored for later consumption or soon coming new planting season!
You simply cut off the dried stem.
