Caring for Cloves

    The seeds can be directly planted, or soaked in water overnight to remove the outer lining. Northern gardeners should mulch heavily with straw for overwintering. Mulch should be removed in the spring after the threat of frost has passed. (Young shoots cannot survive in temps below 20 degrees F on their own. Keep them under cover)
