I see a question from Paul Riley temperate climate Australia regarding shot garlic. can someone tell me do you plant garlic with the green shoot sticking out of the soil or is ok to plant deeper Thanks for any advice in advance

garlic should not be planted after it starts to shoot. Only.plump cloves with no sign of a shoot should be planted. Mid May in temperate climes is the best time to plant.

G'day Joe, mine weren't shot when I planted them last week but I have a few up and would have thought the best way would be to have them proud. That's what they'll end up like anyway...
