Poke him often (every 5ish seconds) to prevent regeneration from his passive. A Garen without a health advantage is a dead Garen.

Also - Bait the use of Decisive Strike and Judgement. If you know he's waiting in a bush, you can walk up fairly close before turning around just before you're in danger range. Most Garens will use either their Q or E cooldown without doing you much harm. As soon as Judgement is on cooldown, you have a good 10 seconds to harass without fear of retaliation - use it!

And by the way, it's "P.P.S.", meaning post-post-script, not "P.S.S." (which would mean post-script-script, which doesn't make any sense).

I agree here, if you have a ranged partner or a ranged skill always try to tap him every few seconds, should be easy as most Garen players will try to run in for a last hit on a minion thinking they can always regen the health later if they get tapped. Also, have 1 member wait in the bushes to tap him for whenever he does go in. Basically, you want to shut his farm down early game or else he is going to dominate the rest of the game. Later on, always ignore Garen in team fights until everyone else is dead, then focus him down.

It is actualy the movement of the creeps that make it obvious.

If you see taric garen in a lane then bring your team to gank them, because anything less won't work.
