    Any advice on October garlic?
    When the garlic and overwintering onions are in the garden centres; that's the time to buy some and put it in.

    You can put it in between Sept and Dec for the best crops, if you do this it should be ready around late June.

    Just a quick addition, there are some varieties of garlic that you're meant to plant in late winter and early spring. Vallelado is one suck type.
