Ever wondered how to grow garlic indoors?
The beautiful thing about nature is that much of our food can be easily reproduced to create more food! Such is the case with garlic!
And the best part is that you can do this TODAY! I love quick, doable things, don’t you? Here’s what you’ll need…
-One organic clove garlic, either one you’ve grown, ordered or purchased from health food store
-One large flower pot or other container (I’m using an old plastic drawer) with good drainage, even if you have to poke small holes in the bottom.
You’ll be able to set the entire pot outside when the weather permits, but for now keep it inside. You also have the option to transplant the cloves separately into a garden bed once it warms up.
I’m using a bulb of garlic that I grew last year, here I’m breaking the cloves apart.
When you plant the cloves, be sure to put the pointed side up, this is where the sprout will grow from.
Put potting soil into your container.
Place each clove, at least 4 inches apart, into the soil. I show them sticking up here, but you’ll need to push them straight down about one inch.
Then water well, but be careful not to soak the cloves. Garlic needs to be watered but doesn’t like too much. Here again, drainage is important.
And that’s all there is to it! I placed my garlic on the same metal shelf as my other seedlings and sweet potato starters. If you want to know how to start your seeds indoors, check out my post here!
