Seed Garlic From Our Farm To You
Looking for a spicy Hardneck or a hardy Softneck? Browse our entire seed collection.
Deciding which type of garlic you should grow can be a daunting task. So many choices! Really it can just come down to personal preference but sometimes your location can make a difference. Both Hardneck and Softneck garlic can be grown anywhere in the US but micro-climates can play a part in how well they perform. If you've found a variety that does really well in your backyard it would be safe to assume that another variety in that same family will also do well. Example: You've been growing Lorz Italian with great results but want to try something new, Lorz Italian is an Artichoke type garlic so you could experiment with other Artichoke types. Transylvanian and Sicilian are Artichoke types too and should perform equally as fantastic in a location that Lorz Italian does well in. You don't have to limit yourself to just one type either. There are so many types to give a try. Artichoke, Silverskin, Porcelain, Purple Strpe, Rocambole, Creole, Turban etc etc. And within those types there are a multitude of varieties. Experimenting is what gardening is all about. Don't be afraid to try something new. Some say Hardnecks are better suited for growing in the North. Oh really? Then how are folks in San Diego growing amazing Hardneck Music garlic? Well one thing they have been experimenting with is refrigerating their seed for 40 days prior to planting. It's called vernalization and it triggers the bulb to divide into segmented cloves. You'll never know until you give it a try. Have fun growing garlic!
