3 reviews

For planting in Fall of 2020

 

Shipping starts the last week of September!!

SORRY, WE CANNOT SEND GARLIC OR ONION PLANTS TO ALASKA, HAWAII, PR, FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND SOME COUNTIES IN IDAHO AND WASHINGTON.

Hardneck-Porcelain type.A porcelain garlic that prefers cooler weather when growing but does well in most of the US but may struggle in warmer regions. Music is a large, pretty bulb with a pink to purple hue and 4-8 easy to peel cloves per bulb. It has a flavor that is spicy with some heat but not overwhelming. A great garlic to use in marinades and rubs, pestos and salsas. Stores well and will last into the winter. Don't forget to harvest and eat the scapes (Soup, Pesto, Hummus) the following spring or leave a few on to produce bulblets for planting next fall.  

1/4 POUND PER ORDER (APPROX. 3-4 BULBS)

Planting: 

Separate cloves, plant 2-4 inches deep and 5-6 inches apart with pointed end up, 3-4 weeks before the ground freezes.

Harvest: 

When lower 4-5 leaves have dried. Dry and hang out of direct light in a warm area with food air circulation. After they have dried for 2-3 weeks, cut off the stem, 1" from bulb and trim roots.

Tips: 

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 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 plant can put its energy into producing the bulb, not 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.

Planting garlic

The bulbs arrived in good shape and were planted the week that I got them. Are now mulched for the winter. When should I remove the mulch ?
