Seriously easy to grow. It was growing wild in our neighbors yard and I asked and she told me the previous house owner had planted it because he was a big rose gardener and apparently they love to grow with each other (one of the few things roses actually like nearby). So I planted some garlic in our roses and some in the other part of the yard. Same soil, same sunlight, same water—the ones with the roses were twice a big. The fun thing is though, when you harvest take a few puny ones, break them up, drop a single clove back in the hole you just pulled from and voila you are done. Simplest thing ever.
