Best garlic for container & is it too late to start in zone 6?

14 years ago

Well, the subject pretty much sums up my questions. I wanted to do garlic last year, but ended up with garlic chives. I got a good crop of the garlic chives & am growing from the same root clusters this year. I did & still do want to grow actual garlic bulbs (or whatever the term may be). What would be the best type of garlic to grow in a container (something easily found at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.)? Also, is it too late to start some in zone 6 (Middle TN)? First frost ranges anywhere from late September to early December...usually somewhere in November though. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I still have time to grow some this year, I probably need to start it soon! =) Thanks - Steve
