Can I grow onions and garlic together?

Planting Onions and Garlic

Since onions and garlic have similar traits, some people try to plant them together. However, there are several good reasons not to do this. They are:

1. Onions and garlic have different watering needs.

2. Growing these two plants close together could mean that you aren't giving the garlic enough room for the bulbs to fully develop.

3. Some people say their onions taste a bit like garlic when the two plants are grown together.
