Any. What you want to eat.
Strawberry Plants 30 Sep, Liliana (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I’m a newbie at growing strawberries. If I cover them for protection from the birds, won’t that interfere with insects being able to pollenate the flowers?
Strawberry Plants 12 Nov, Julie (USA - Zone 9b climate)
You can also purchase netting at garden stores that will keep the birds out, but let sun and moisture in.

They are self pollinators.
Garlic 30 Sep, Barb (USA - Zone 5b climate)
How often do you water the garlic? What are garlic frills??? I think that is the word....when the tops start to curl.
Garlic 30 Oct, Jo (USA - Zone 5b climate)
Scapes are only grown from the hardneck garlic. Once they coil around 1-2 times it’s important to cut close to the stem so the plant doesn’t expend it’s energy growing the scape not the bulb. Once the scapes grow the bulbs are usually ready to be harvested a month or so thereafter! Hardnecks are great for cooler zones and softnecks for warmer climates. For storage though softnecks are much preferred as they can store well 6-9 months whereas hardneck bulbs usually only 3-6 months.

Your soil should be moist but not really wet. Try watering 2-3 times a week depending on how hot it is.

Garlic 09 Sep, Donna (USA - Zone 7b climate)
I’m in 7b. Will garlic thrive in pots and standing gardens?
Garlic 20 Sep, Brian Simpson (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Pots are the best place to grow your garlic, make sure you give it lots of fertilizer and do not plan more then 3 garlic bulbs. I started growing ma few in pots this year and they already starting to grow or sprout out, and I'm planting some in pots in a few weeks. So to answer the question Yes it thrive in Pots, raised beds or a small inground garden. Come check out harvest for 2022 on social media

It says to plant now. It all comes down to how fertile your soil is and whether you water them enough. Pots require more attention.
