1 review
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-Rocambole type. A popular late 1800’s heirloom variety from the Pacific Northwest.  Hot and spicy when raw, rich and flavorful when sauteed or roasted. Each bulb has an average of 8-12 cloves wrapped in a light purple striped, easy to peel skin. Performs best in northern climates. 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. Stores 4-6 months

1/4 POUND PER ORDER 

Planting: 

Separate cloves, plant 2-4 inches deep and 5-6 inches apart with the 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 the 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 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.

    Pinetree is great. My Go-To seed company! I do some specialty seed buying, but any classic or popular/trending seed or bulb, I will order, from Pinetree. Ships on time for planting; everything is excellent quality; germination rate is top. Their collections are also superb: no filler or duds. Love this place! and have for over 25 years. Aren’t you glad you asked?
