I was thinking about this, that was sweet peas, I'm getting senile in my old age.My old neighbour used to plant on his wife's birthday in October,
I plant a good month before that and get away with it, so I reckon if she pops them in quick a month later (now) she will still get away with it; I'll get mine in June, she might have to wait 'til August, but it's still summer weather then. It is worth a try, I can't see them keeping well 'til next year.In this country (uk) plant your cloves between early February and mid April in the open.
That doesn't seem to be the case much in the UK, they tend to sprout even when they get left at the bottom of the cupboard.You say they were given to you, so check they are not garlic purchased at the grocery store for eating. Those are usually (unless "organic") treated to stop them shooting. so they may take a very long time to sprout.
