When to plant onion sets and Garlic in zone 8B in North Florida

Zone 32643 | Anonymous added on November 3, 2019 | Answered

I am an organic gardener and wish to plant onion sets and garlic this year. Can you plant in November or should I wait until February? Can you also tell me about adding blood and bone meal to the soil prior to or throughout the growing season? Their are many supplemental fertilizers that can be added without the generic 10-10-10 or 6-6-6 application. Thanks Ron

These three articles are all about growing garlic and onions in your zone:

Our experts say to plant warm-climate garlic in late October through early December. Depending upon the strain of onions you choose, there may be different planting requirements. Our suggestion is to check with your local extension office to find out about best practices for growing both in your specific area.
