Wood chip mulch is added to the garlic bed. The mulch protects the garlic from winter weather. Mulch is purchased for ten dollars a yard, which is transported in my van using a half cubic yard box. The garlic will be planted later this month.I have about 100 cloves to plant,a few rounds, and 100 bulbils. In the Spring the garlic plant has no difficulty growing through the mulch.
