It’s very easy to grow and seems to be tolerant of a wide range of conditions. It won’t bloom until summer, but it’s really a pretty plant when it does.

I’ve been wanting to plant garlic, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I wonder if it’s too late. I definitely like anything that will attract butterflies in the spring. I even had blogged about it.

Earlier this fall I lifted and divided the hyacinths in a planter in hopes of many more of those lovely fragrant spires. Last month, I was adding a few pansies to one of those planters and found that the hyacinths were already trying to grow! I put in a few more garlics back in September, in the same beds and pots that hold my roses; garden lore says garlic plants help roses fend off black-spot – a big pest in any humid climate. If it works, my roses will be healthier, and even if it doesn’t, I’ll have tasty garlic cloves to use in the kitchen. No matter what though, I’ll leave some to bloom for the butterflies.

So here in NYS you can plant up untill the ground freezes. Cover the ground over the bulbs with leaves or some type of mulch, but not to heavy. The wonder of Spring.

Planting anything without planning could be scrawny. Looking many people in my country who planting a billion trees is waste of nation budget. Reading this article shows to plant it is not easy and need process and procedure. “Go Green” need planning, not just planting!
