That's the way I buy mine. Break the cloves apart and plant them pointed side up.

Mine will be ready for harvest in a few months.

Ahhh...supermarket garden, one way I get lots of cheap seeds! wink smile laugh most things from supermarkets will root and grow, garlic, onion, leeks, green onions......I've even tried starting pomegrante seeds from the supermarket, took a while to clean, but had seedlings!

My celery rots when I tried to make it root. Do you do anything special to it, dodge? Maybe if I just threatened my celery: "you grow roots or it's the compost pile for you, buddy!"
