A couple of weeks back I dug up the garlic and left it in the shed to dried out.  I wanted to try and plait it so I could hang it in the kitchen ready for use.

Today I made my first attempt at plaiting having read up how to plait garlic on a blog by wwwgillybeansgardencom, many thanks for that.

It only has to be good enough to hang in the kitchen, the main purpose is to use it.



  • Hi, The sight of your lovely big garlic plait and lemon and elderflower marmalade below make me long for spring and summer to come here.

    • Hi Gilly, many thanks again for passing on the skill of plaiting, the garlic is now hanging in pride of place in my kitchen, much nicer than sitting in a basket.

  • Agreed, the plait is really lovely. And so functional! Garlic is definitely on my list of things to plant.
