Just wondering how often I should water my garlic and how do I know when to harvest? They were planted about 4 days ago and I'm in Perth, Western Australia. Thanks!

Read earlier post today re planting. You need good draining soil. Too wet and it will rot and too dry and will die. I would say you have sandy soil. Try a little water each day. Sandy soil water more regularly than good soil. Bit of trial and error. Google about growing it.
