my first year too
planted 8 cloves outside and 2 on a window sill as an experiment planted middle of october.
the 2 on sill have massive shoots. the rest in the veg patch all have little shoots. i've put cloches over them (plastic squash bottles cut in half) to keep snow off, they have disappered in the snow completely covers them.
I have more cloves so i'm going to start them all off inside, i might leave them outide for a bit to get cold then
