Where can I buy garlic bulbs this time of year?

Where can I buy garlic bulbs this time of year? From what I can tell, this is the time to plant them for a late spring harvest. I have some spots I could put them in, but my favorite nursery tells me they only get and sell garlic bulbs in the spring.

I've planted a couple I bought from the store, but I was hoping to get a cultivar more suited to the home garden.

I usually get mine from The garlic store, I have also ordered from Seeds of Change. I would be a bit cautious of ordering from Gurney's. Check out Dave's Garden, The Garden Watchdog for reviews of various mail order companies.

The farmer's market here in Duluth had several different home grown varieties. I bought 4 different bulbs and separated them and planted about 32 cloves. Nice cuz I didn't have to buy 1/2 pound of one variety or pay shipping. Just hope they grow.

Hostaholic, you're right about Gurneys. I'd forgotten I'd read that on Garden Watchdog too. Funny how things can change. Years ago they were a standard. My mom did all her ordering from Gurney's and Earl Mays for as long as I can remember.

Yes, my mom ordered all her stock from Gurneys too. When I first started gardening I ordered from them too, until I started getting poor quality stock.
