Garlic

Allium sativum

Garlic is a perennial flowering plant growing from a bulb. It is pollinated by bees, butterflies, moths, and other insects.

Mulch for proper overwintering when planted in autumn.

To harvest dig and do not pull out the bulbs. Let them dry in an airy, shady and dry spot e.g. by hanging them up. Once wrappers are dry, it can be stored at a dry place.
