Who doesn’t love garlic? Its robust flavor adds dimension to almost any dish and the best part is – it’s extremely easy to grow! The best, tastiest Garlic comes straight from the garden. Our Softneck California Garlic
is known for both its culinary and medicinal aspects, making it a home garden favorite. What is standing between you and freshly grown, flavor-packed garlic? Just a few simple steps!
1. Purchase Garlic Bulbs (Here).
– Separate cloves from the bulbs and plant each clove, pointed end up, 4” deep in a sunny spot. Space the cloves 6” apart, with about 12” between each row you plant. The best time to plant is early spring, as soon as the soil is workable.
– Water, weed, water! Pinch off flowers that emerge. Although pretty, they will steal much-needed energy from the growing bulbs!
When the green growth starts to die back (around mid-summer), this means it is time to harvest and start curing. Curing is basically drying the bulbs out – simply place them in a warm, sunny area for several weeks. Once the stalks are dry, cut them off and you are ready to start chopping! Garlic
can be stored for a long time in a cool, dry place by roping or hanging in netted bags.
You will enjoy your next garlic-infused dish so much more knowing it came from your own green thumbs!
