Mulch in a Pot

Category: GARLIC | Posted: Fri Jul 22, 2011 4:09 pm

I noticed that the earth in the pot gets quite dry during the day because of the hot weather and intruders are raring their ugly heads!

The garlic seems to be happy just sitting there while the intruders were busy marking their territories.

I was mowing the lawn and I thought why not mulch it with the grass clipping to keep the intruders at bay and the earth in the pot moist. I have never put mulch in a pot before and it looks like a good idea at that time. Now I'm thinking ... will it affect the garlic?

So are these intruders insect eggs or weeds?

By the way, I love your description 'resident intruders' and how you labelled them!!!

Thanks Cayuga, the intruders are the weeds.

Weeds seem to be very opportunistic but then again they are usually the ones with the most seeds. I will try that one KK, trying of course not to introduce weeds from the clippings.

Good luck on the garlic. I want to try some next year. Growing up, garlic came out of a plastic bottle that you sprinkled. I tried to buy one the first time the husband and I went grocery shopping together. Big mistake. He always uses fresh and minces it himself. Big BIG difference. Keep us informed on how it grows. I'll be learning from you. :)

Hi Miss Liberty, thanks and please do try it. Fresh is always the best and I love garlic too. Best garlic according to the Chinese is old garlic, it cost 25~30% more than ordinary garlic and it is worth paying a premium for it. I have heard fall garlic is more flavourful that garlic planted in spring, so maybe old garlic = fall garlic. If we have 4 seasons here, I will definitely plant them in autumn.
