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