Get soil

Get a pot and soil mix from a nursery. Garlic likes a soil that is slightly acidic. Make sure you let the nursery know that you are growing garlic.

Plant properly

In a pot, dig a hole that is 2 inches deep and plant the garlic cloves so that they point upwards. Keep at least 12 inches space between the cloves.

Water and wait

Sprinkle water every other day. The cloves will sprout in less than a month but you need to give at least 2 months to let them grow fully.
