With fall here I was wondering how garlic plants can be grown in each square?

There is a good discussion about planting garlic here: http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/general-sfg-talk-f5/planting-garlic-t4107.htm

Good luck with your garlic (I'm still waiting for mine to arrive), and welcome to the forum! glad you\'re here

I plant 9 per square. 16 is just a little too crowded for me. That said, I have started planting one garlic bulb in corners of squares - where the lathe or string criss-crosses - since garlic supposedly is a good companion plant for almost anything.

I do 5 per square in a dice pattern for regular garlic and 2 at a diagonal for elephant to get the largest bulbs. This year I'm going to try 3 per square for elephant to see how that works -- an upright triangle in one square and upside down in the adjacent (not sure that makes sense). That will space the plants at 8-9". I'm also going to place some regular garlic in squares throughout the main garden for protection next spring when I'm planting spring/summer veggies. If I'm not careful, I'll end up the queen of garlic! Very Happy

I just got my SESE garlic and potato onions today. They suggest planting around Thanksgiving in this area. Can't wait! Very Happy

Doesn't look like you are exactly throwing in the towel, does it?
