If you feel the urge to grow stuff indoors in winter, or you’re an urban gardener with a need for live green things, growing garlic indoors is perfect. It’s also a great project to do with kids. It can take awhile, so patience is necessary.
You can snip off the shoots as they grow and have a sweet, garlic-y green to add to salads or as a garnish for soups. They are also great on top of potatoes.
What you need:
- A head of garlic – It’s ok if it has already started to grow
- Potting mix
- A container, coffee can or flower pot
- Can opener, or hammer and large nail if you are using can
