    You can grow garlic indoors, but you won’t get a head of garlic as you would when you plant cloves in the garden. What you'll get will be garlic sprouts or greens, the green tops of a bulb (much like what happens when a bulb sprouts on your kitchen counter). These greens are not the same as green garlic, which is early spring garlic or immature garlic bulbs and their edible green stalks. They are still quite delicious and can be used as seasoning or garnish. Their flavor is lighter and gentler than that of fresh can grow it year round indoors even in water by staggering the planting time of the bulbs, it takes about 7-10 days to grow them for the greens/tops ;To grow entire heads of garlic, you’ll need to plant outdoors because like other bulbs (think onions and daffodils), they need the cold winter dormancy to produce the scape (flower) and generate a head. Plant in fall, about 6 weeks before hard frost. Set large, firm individual cloves point up in well-prepared soil, burying cloves an inch or two below ground level in mild zones, and at twice that depth in cold-winter areas.
