Did you know that Elephant garlic is a closer relative to leeks than garlic? Compared to hardneck garlic, they produce supersized heads, up to 4-6” with extra large mild-flavored cloves. Cloves can be used raw, not having the intense hot bite like hardnecks while the leaves can be used like chives. The plants reach 4-5 feet, and one bulb has 5-7 cloves.
1 bulb= $14.95
2 or more bulbs= $11.95
3 or more bulbs= $10.95
(approximately 3 bulbs per pound)
Separate cloves, plant 5-6 inches deep and 10-12 inches apart with the pointed end up, 3-4 weeks before the ground freezes.
When the lower 4-5 leaves have dried. Dry and hang out of direct light in a warm area with good air circulation. After they have dried for 2-3 weeks, cut off the stem, 1" from the bulb, and trim the roots.
Plant in well-drained, rich soil, amend with organic matter, such as compost. Mulch the garlic 4" with straw or chopped leaves, this helps protect from extreme winter conditions, keeps the soil evenly moist, and controls weeds for next season. Cut off scapes when they emerge (the curly seed stalk that will rise from the middle of the plant) so the plant can put its energy into producing the bulb, not the seed head. You can leave scapes on, producing smaller bulbs and the bulbets from the seed head can be planted for full-sized garlic in 2 years.
