Starting garlic before area is ready?
If you don't have a space ready for Garlic in the garden yet, the best thing you can do is get hem started off in small pots, just split your bulbs and plant the cloves into pots which have been prefilled with a mix of multi-purpose compost, and some vermiculite if you have it (you'll get bags of this in any garden centre), the cloves will be happy enough in these pots for the next few months until you have a site ready. The pots can be placed outside or left in a coldframe or unheated greenhouse...
