I have read that when the garlic sprouts in the fall the remaining stalk can also wick moisture out during the winter, weakening or killing the bulb...
Jerry Fitzgibbon
20:15
Can we plant on it's side?
Betsy
20:29
Will it grow well in containers?
Maren Cooke
22:08
I've grown great garlic in ~5" of soil on a roof, which is essentially a container...
Betsy

Ty. Just trying to figure out how to make space for something that stays in the garden so long!
patrick mccullough
23:19
we use leaves
Kristi Ruggles
23:46
do leaves work okay or too heavy?
Maren Cooke

Only issue with leaves is that they can mat down...
Maren Cooke
24:22
Re: compost…. Grow Pittsburgh's Garden Resource Center is a material supply depot and tool lending library; members can go get buckets of compost, a topsoil-compost mix, and mulch each month, and also buy cover crop seeds and soil amendments. https://www.growpittsburgh.org/garden-and-farm-resources/garden-resource-center/
Rose

Do you have to soak the bulbs before planting?
patrick mccullough
24:54
my leaves are mulched
Maren Cooke
25:13
I usually get plenty of green garlic in the spring from bulbs that I missed harvesting the year before.
Maren Cooke
27:01
I've usually cut scapes as in the photo, but was recently told that if one pulls them out (holding the ground down to keep from pulling the bulb out), the best part is low down. This is all early in the scape cycle, like early June.
Maren Cooke
27:24
The bulbils can also go into soup stock.
Maren Cooke
27:41
(without worrying about peeling them)
Linda J Walker
33:29
Is there a way to preserve garlic? I'm concerned about it not keeping until July.
Kristi Ruggles
34:08
Yes, I would love to know this too. I have too much to replant...as discussed, can't give up all my garden space!

I had garlic maggots this year.
patrick mccullough
38:22
can you put it in the fridge
Maren Cooke
39:51
I'm not a fan of the ice-cube-tray method for freezing... there's too much air involved. Better in a glass jar with a layer of olive oil on top. There are little 4-oz straight-sided canning jars, for small quantities…
Autumn

Is winter berry good for staging. Is winterberry toxic
Linda J Walker
41:25
What do you do for garlic maggots?
Maren Cooke
44:06
Serviceberries are kind like a mild, sweet blueberry.
Maren Cooke

Goldfinches also love anise hyssop.

Betsy

Super helpful! Thank you! As for kids in the garden, my kids are adults and still talk about the garden tunnel we had when they were little. Just PVC pipe bent into an arch and covered in netting and growing green beans and other climbers. They spent so many afternoons in that tunnel.
Maren Cooke

Wild Ones has a chapter here, too -- encouraging and enabling native plants.
