{DIY Blogger Project} Growing Garlic From Scraps


A few months back, I purchased some fresh garlic for a recipe.  Usually, I just get the deli container of the peeled cloves, but for some reason this time I went for fresh garlic.

Then, the other night, when looking for usable garlic, I found this.

Two heads of garlic that were busting at the seams!  Lots of beautiful green shoots, and the cloves pushing apart as the new growth caused them to swell.

Garlic costs about $3.99/lb, and I refuse to throw that kind of money away, so I did what any frugal mama would do – I planted it!

Garlic cloves are the individual seeds that when planted will each become another head of garlic.  So my 2 heads of garlic, plus some soil, water, and sunshine will grow into about 18 heads of garlic over the next few months.


  1. Split the heads into individual cloves.  You want to keep as much of the paper on each clove as possible.
  2. Plant the garlic cloves 1-2 inches deep, with the green tip pointing up.  Space your cloves at least 4 inches apart (You may have to thin these out as they grow).
  3. Water the garlic to keep the soil moist, but don’t turn it into mud.
  4. Stop watering a few weeks before harvesting.
  5. Harvest the garlic when the leaves begin to yellow and die back.  Don’t wait for them to completely yellow, or your bulbs will have split.
  6. Harvest is usually late July to early August.


So there you have it.  Garlic gone wrong, and re-purposed for the garden.  I’ll be checking back in a few months to see just how they are doing, and will share my progress.

So what have you been doing in the garden lately?  Any outdoor or gardening projects you would like to share?  Join our blog hop below!
