This garlic is the taste and the quality that we enjoy. It is also longer lasting so it will be available for some time. The size of the garlic is perfect.

I just wanted to try these.

This is my first time to plant garlic. I was looking for a variety that was fairly strong in flavor with good paper skins so that they will last a long time. This sounded like it fit the bill.

Can you buy garl??c now and store until the fall for planting?

Is it too late to plant garlic?
Jim A on May 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees:
1) when the ground is not frozen.
2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F.
3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!

Amazing!
The Garlic arrived as part of a partial shipment-- In the shipping box that had been torn apart (by the Shippers) and Taped back together,

I planted the Cloves on the next Root crop day, Green shoots were coming up the next day from some of them, Many within a few days! Very pleased with them.
I am planting most plants this year in Containers (some are, or are similar to Earth Boxes) Should have more Garlic than I can use! Great purchase!
