you can plant it in the fall too. it'll get a head start on it's root system, and sprout very early in the spring. it's tough stuff. cold doesnt bother it at all.

We discovered the hard way that garlic is invasive and hard to kill. Once it starts to spread, you are in deep stinky yard junk.

cut the scapes (flower stalks) off when they start to form. you'll get no seeds or bulblets, and it won't spread.
or are you thinking of garlic mustard?

set your compost bin on top of the spot for a year. LOTS of hot green grass.
