Growing Garlic

I have several garlic plants in large pots which look really healthy following the harsh winter. What is the best feed come Spring?

    I've heard that blood, fish and bone is the best, but here is a link to the RHS advice about growing garlic.

    rocketman, when the cold weather is overand the garlic is growing again you can give it a liquid seaeed feed. Garlic is quite a hungry plant so needs regular feeding

    jon cob, I have friends who grow garlic very successfully but they don't do this forum, so I gave their advice as I don't grow it as I'm not that keen on it.

  • I use a high nitrogen liquid feed.

    That's funny, the rather unpolite remark jon cob made to me, which I answered above, has gone!
