Can I grow garlic in small pots?
Wiltshire, United Kingdom
Last year I found my onions, leeks and spring onions were covered in a white fungus growth at the bulb poitn and spreading upwards - I'm assuming it's a
disease based in the soil and therefore I won't be able to grow any of the onion family in my raised beds...gutted. However we eat a lot from this family and I want to grow some to supplement our shopping - can I grow garlic in pots? If so, what size pots would be suitable? 9cm or would this be too small?
Also, another question, how deep do shallots roots go? Just wondering if I can lay a new big sized compost bag down and cut the larger surface area out to create a mini type raised bed... any thoughts on how you reckon this would fare for the shallots?
