Our garlic seed is grown with-out any chemicals and in our very own display garden located in the beautiful Audubon Park Neighborhood. It is known that plants grown from seed that were grown and acclimated to your area perform better than seed that comes from other climates. Did you know that for every one pound of garlic you plant can produce up eight pounds of garlic for eating or planting next fall?

How to Grow Garlic:
Plant individual garlic cloves in the fall, prior to the ground freezing, in well-prepared beds of soil that is rich in organic matter. Plant cloves 1 to 2 inches deep about 8 inches apart making sure that the tip of the clove is pointing up and the footprint of the root is down. Cover with straw mulch prior to the hard freezes of winter and then uncover in spring. Provide adequate irrigation and weed control in order to achieve maximum bulb size. Harvest scapes when they have made one full curl and before becoming erect (can still be used erect however the texture is tougher). Garlic is ready for harvesting when the bulbs are completely filled out and plump. Watch for the bottom two leaves to brown and die back and for the rest of the plant to begin to yellow. Test dig a few bulbs to determine if crop is ready. Discontinue irrigation for about two weeks prior to harvest. Do not pull garlic up by the stalk but lift the garlic by digging with a fork or shovel. Harvested garlic should be spread out or hung away from direct sunlight for two to three weeks to cure (air conditioned location is okay). Make sure curing bulbs have adequate air circulation and are not piled atop of one another. LIKE our Facebook Page to see when we plant seed, harvest garlic scapes, and harvest our bulbs!
