Planting Garlic

We have a very amusing book by Dr D. G. Hessayon called “The Vegetable & Herb Expert”, which is essential reading if you aspire to be old-fashioned. (“People who claim that they never need to spray [pesticides] are lying, lucky or living on poor vegetables.”)

The advice on garlic is that “If you are a beginner with garlic, you must use it very sparingly or you will be put off forever.” If you are feeling really daring, the author suggests you “try using crushed garlic in meat, etc. as the Continentals do.”
