Plant your separated garlic cloves in a prepared bed, (as with onions) in september, leaving the tip of the clove slightly exposed. Plant about ten inches apart, these should be ready in August the following year, wait until the leaves start to yellow and dig up, and again as with onions, clean off the soil, and allow to dry in a cool airy place. Alternatively, get two car tyres and place them on their side, one on top of the other,and fill with compost, and set six cloves in this, if you are limmited for space, and leave to grow outside. dont be concerned over frost and snow, garlic thrives on it. The latter method of growing can be applied to any plant when the growing area is limmited,
To harvest garlic you have to wait till the stalks turn a yellowish color and then dig them up and cut the stem off about four inches above the bulb. Allow several weeks for them to dry out in a cool dry place. ( basement )
Garlic takes more than one season to grow. Plant it this year and next year you'll have garlic.
