- Q. Where can I get garlic plants? I would like to grow some elephant garlic.
- A. To start garlic, buy some heads of garlic and refrigerate them for several months. Plant them out in a sunny area. Set the cloves two to three inches deep.
- Q. Can I grow the ginger root that is sold in grocery stores in my yard?
- A. Yes, plant them in late winter in an area that is sunny but not late in the afternoon. It will take about a year before it will be ready to harvest. The entire plant is lifted out of the ground and the tubers taken. Some can be replanted for the next crop.
