Hard-neck garlic cannot be braided into decorative ropes. For that reason, Pat Reppert, founder of Shale Hill Farm and Herb Gardens, suggests making beautiful decorative bundles of garlic, tied with fresh rosemary, sage, and oregano, then finished off with a raffia bow.

These bundles make lovely gifts that can be hung on walls or door frames. And the aroma of the herbs adds an unexpected touch.

Tools and Materials

  • 9 to 12 heads of garlic, long stems attached
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Fresh sage
  • Fresh oregano
  • Raffia

Garlic Bunches How-To

1. Clean sprigs of garlic, removing skin and debris. Do not remove the stems.

2. Trim roots of garlic heads.

3. Arrange 3 or 4 heads of garlic together, forming a small bunch.

4. Add generous sprigs of rosemary, oregano, and sage to the bunch.

5. Using raffia, tie the garlic and herbs together, forming a bundle.

6. Tie 4 or 5 small bundles together, forming one big bunch.

7. Tie the decorative bunch with a raffia bow.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
