Hi, I've failed many seasons with garlic! However, after a lot of research, I have a solution to growing sub tropic garlic. The key is growing the right variety, that can handle our heat. Glen Large garlic is the winner! Plant in April. Harvest in October. I've had a bumper crop with this variety.

I agree Glen Large are the best variety for the subtropics. I'm just north of Brisbane and get amazing harvest if I plant and harvest at the right time. I bought Mine from Green Harvest. They include all the detail on how to grow. (https://greenharvest.com.au/)

It's too hot for them to grow in summer. Try growing garlic in Autumn and harvest around Oct-November
