Confession time. Have you ever had old garlic grow green tops? Well, there is no need to be ashamed or to throw them in the bin because those little beauties are growing magically all on their own.
To enjoy the freshest flavour and juiciest cloves, grow your own by dividing the bulbs into individual cloves. Take care not to damage the cloves when separating.
Then you can plant them one of two ways;
- Place a clove in a shot glass filled with water and watch the magic happen.
- Plant the clove with the roots facing down in potting soil.
Garlic likes plenty of direct sunlight so in warmer weather, keep it outdoors in the sun during the day. Once sprouted, the tops can be eaten like green onions. Yummy!
