Depending on the season, the bulk garlic may have slight imperfections such as misshapen bulbs, minor nicks, open wrappers or slightly stained skins. Although the planting quality is similar, our premium (regular) bulbs have a more rigorous selection process and tend to be more perfect in appearance than our bulk bulbs.
PLEASE NOTE: If you order both bulk and premium garlic seed, they will all be shipped out together.
Garlic is a heavy feeder. For best results, apply a well-balanced organic fertilizer at planting and in spring. Planting a green manure cover crop the season before growing garlic is also recommended.
