I have an 8cm tray. Would this be deep enough to grow garlic in?

If you want to check it 3 times a day to see if the soil is moist enough.

With all plants this method works & I'm not being sarcastic. Poke your finger 1- 3cm into soil & if soil sticks to your finger then it it moist .the old saying and rule of thumb is a thumb & & and a thumb nail ...that's a little bit of dirt left on your finger ....
