My First Planting of Garlic December 4th. I am not sure if it will even grow. I read many sites on planting garlic. Why not give it a try. I am located in the northern part of Florida. Most websites that I have read said I could plant my garlic now. Planting times could be between the months of November to country where the ground does not freeze solid in the winter, garlic may be planted anytime from October through January. Check with good gardeners in your area for a local planting date. With me I am going to give it a try. I know I do love to cook with garlic. We’ll see. For anyone that lives in Florida and is more experienced with growing Garlic, I am open for suggestions, so please leave a comment to help me out.
