Best Garlic Seed for your Buck?

Just wondering where everyone is getting their garlic seed this year. I loved growing it so much I'm going to grow more. Last year I bought off Travis and he gave me great advice regardless of his disease. I never met him, but miss him already!

I use Karen & Mike (wegrowgarlic.com). Great quality, wonderful people, and they sell by the bulb.

TomNJ, it seems that their web page hasn't been updated this year. Do you know if they will have any garlic for sale this fall?

Yes, they will begin offering this year's crop around mid-July. They sell out of popular varieties fast, so watch the website, or request to be notified when the garlic is ready for ordering.

Do you know how much they sell it for. I have seen prices as high as $22 pound. I tried to email them and havent heard from them.

The price is per bulb and depends on the bulb size. Last year, very large bulbs (2.5"+) were $2.90 each. If you figure about six large bulbs per pound that comes to about $17.50/lb - pretty typical of Internet prices. Their bulb quality is superb!

You may be able to buy cheaper from local farmers, but your variety choice will be very limited, usually just 2-4 varieties. Karen & Mike offer something like 150 different varieties.

I have always had very fast replies from Karen to my emails, but this is harvest time so they may be very busy.

Has anyone heard of South Road Garlic Farm?
