The Q&A Archives: Garlic?

Question: I want to plant garlic this year but have been told that it will make other plants smell and taste like garlic if I plant to close to it. True or False?

Answer: Not true at all. I plant garlic in with my flowers all the time and I have never had a problem. I even cut the flowers to take indoors and have never noticed a garlic smell. I think what you've heard is an old wive's tale.
