Don't plant grocery store garlic
Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is closely related to onions and chives and is used as a medicinal and culinary herb. Garlic is growing in popularity as we become more accustomed to its flavor and knowledge about its many health benefits. Garlic forms bulbs, which separate into cloves, each covered with a white-purplish or pinkish, papery sheath. It is the cloves of garlic which are planted for propagation. Purchase cloves for planting from national or local garlic seed producers.
