Any time before March will be fine for Garlic. They don't like to be waterlogged, so might actually be better holding off for a while if you've had the levels of rain we've had recently.

If garlic likes a hot summer, then grow it in your greenhouse.

Or get a propagator/planter/cold frame/similar with a clear/transparent lid.

And just keep it well watered, but not waterlogged.

Ooh - garlic in the greenhouse is a genius idea Fozzy!

I planted it a couple of years on the trot in the veg bed using cloves from Lidl! Year 1 was pretty good. Year 2 was wetter & cooler, and the crop was very disappointing.

Off to Lidl for a bulb later this week with the rest of the groceries, now!

Thanks for the garlic advice. Long warm summers aren’t really a thing around here so I might try some in the greenhouse and some in a raised bed under a cloche / cold frame.

As a newbie(ish) gardener in sunny Scotland is there anything I should be planting/pruning this month, snow and frost permitting?

Got something to say?
