In your gardening region, garlic should be planted in the fall so you can harvest in the spring. It grows best in full sunshine and grows best outdoors. The bulbs begin to form in response to warmer temperatures and the lengthening days of spring. While you might try growing garlic indoors, the plants will produce tasty leaves, but bulbs will not form.
