Garlic Growing Ideas
1. Garlic in a Plastic Bottle
One creative way to grow garlic is by using plastic bottles. Make holes around the bottles, and fill them with garlic cloves. Pour some water under the plastic bottle and cover it with another bottle.
The moisture created by the steam will encourage the garlic to sprout and take root. After about 10-14 days, you can remove the bottles and plant the garlic on the ground. Watch the video here for details.
2. Have an Unlimited Supply of Garlic with this Hack
Cut the plastic bottles in half, fill them with water leaving the top, set the other cut part on the bottle, and place garlic bulbs upside down on it.
Change the water every day, and you’ll see the bulbs beginning to sprout on day 4th or 6th day. See the details here.
