Hi all: What do you feel are the proper soil conditions for onions and garlic - what's worked best for you. I've read that onions like both mildly acidic soil (pH 6.5) and slightly alkaline soil. Same for garlic bulbs. Also, what worked best for you in terms of getting garlic bulbs to size up? (I'm zone 5.) I planted garlic this month (didn't have available space last fall), and I really, really want to ensure they grow well. I fertilize them once a week with fish emulsion. Anything else you'd recommend?
