In Central Ontario, garlic cloves should be planted by the end of October for harvest in Mid July of the following year. The cloves may start growing if planted too early.  Plant 4 inches deep in a well drained site with plenty of compost. 

Garlic is a perennial crop and some varieties do better in colder environments than others. We have sourced varieties that can get through our tough winters and grow in our heavy clay soil. There are as many different garlic varieties as there are tomatoes varying in flavour, size and hardiness.
