Recommended garlic type for Florida?
What sort of garlic would be good for planting in Florida?
It's too late to plant for this season, but this gives me plenty of time to find sources for the coming Fall.
I waited too late last year to mail order so ended up planting grocery store garlic. I achieved nearly 100% germination and for the first month or so they grew well, but gradually it all petered out and died. The shallots, Vidalia onions, and elephant garlic I planted have all thrived so I suspect the garlic simply wasn't adapted to Florida conditions.
If possible I'd like to plant something that will keep over the summer once it's been harvested and cured.
