Betsy Hilborn asked, "How do you plant garlic bulbs?  Are they just like 
onion bulbs where they are just pushed into the top layer of the soil or are 
they planted deeper than that?"


    Here in North Central Minnesota, I dig a hole 6" deep for mine.  Then I 
cover the soil with 2 to 4 inches of pine needles and I have never had any 
winterkill.
