I find I never have to score 4 o’clocks or morning glory to get them to sprout.I just soak them overnight in lukewarm water and plant them the next day.
I was wondering what you meant by prepared the garlic and peeled all the way down.I want to try growing some garlic this year but have no idea how to start it.

I have had alot of luck with garlic, but I only grow them for the greens, I am not patient enough to wait for the whole bulbs, tho this year I might just out of curiosity.
I cut the hard stuff off the bottom of the garlic and peel everything off of it, put it in some Miracle Grow and it should in a few days sprout the greens I love. I peeled it yesterday and had it in a baggie in my room, I left it outside the window and I looked at it this morning and the beginnings of the sprouts have already begun. :D
I have read in all my books they like rich soil, oh I also put them in the direct sun as well, just as simple as you can get peel and pop them in. Just buy some from the store and you should be good to go ;)

Do you cook the greens or eat them in a salad.
