Note on Shipping Date: Please select your desired shipping date (it should be several weeks before you need to plant so you don't have to worry). We clove garlic bulbs right before we ship it to you so it is fresh.
Warmer climates should plant garlic later in October. We plant in late October here in WA. Studies show that planting later in the fall results in bigger bulbs.

Eight Top Tips for Terrific Garlic
1) Start with big healthy garlic cloves to plant.
2) Select the right garlic variety for your climate. you may need to experiment to see which varieties work bast for you.
3) Prepare a good planting bed for garlic cloves; soil should be loose and well draining. Garlic hates wet roots and will have small or rotten bulbs if soil is too wet.
4) Add lots of organic matter; garlic likes lots of nitrogen.
5) Plant garlic cloves late in the fall for the biggest bulbs.
6) Keep garlic well weeded.
7) Harvest at the right time; when plants have 3-4 dried bottom leaves and the top leaves are still green.
8) Cure (dry) garlic bulbs carefully to make the garlic last all winter long.
