Hardneck vs. Softneck Garlic:
There are two basic types of garlic to grow in your garden: hardneck garlic and softneck garlic. There are some important differences between the two, and each of them are better-suited to certain conditions than the other.
If you've planted spring-blooming bulbs, you'll find that planting garlic is pretty much the same.
Growing and Harvesting Garlic:
Garlic is a pretty carefree plant to grow in the garden. Once it's planted, you can leave it alone until it's time to harvest -- and don't forget the scapes! Garlic scapes are one of those delicacies that many garlic growers look forward to every summer.
