Hi Brycey. I'm Glasgow as well. I'm on my 4th year growing veg and it certainly has been a steep learning curve. I plant out my garlic in October and it did very well last year. This year it looks quite well at this stage. I also have some more to put in the ground which will be the latest I have tried it so the results should be good to compare. I would say we are fortunate to have frost till later in the year as far as garlic goes as it really does need some to spllit into cloves.
I would suggest that planting out anything else might be a bit early yet. Frist is great for the garlic but will kill off the others. The ground is too cold for onions I think and the parsnips wont germinate yet even in containers.
Last year we had late frosts till May which killed off a few of my early sowing. Doesn't stop me from itching to get sowing again this year! Just trying some self restraint!!
