Got my garlic today

I got the garlic today from wegrowgarlic and everything looks fine.

I ordered Spanish Roja, Killarney Red, Chinese Purple, Bogatyr, and the Doghouse which is either Georgian Crystal or German White.

Go for the Doghouse garlic because the bulbs they sent are huge and it was very reasonably priced.

I'm looking forward to the Bogatyr but they are the smallest of the bulbs. The cloves do look big so if you have grown this type let me know what your experience has been.

I also received my garlic from them yesterday and the bulbs are large and perfect as usual (German Red, Russian Red, and Estonian Red). They sure are fast - I paid on Monday and received the box on Wednesday! The rest of next year's crop will be replants from this year (Spanish Roja and Killarney Red), along with some German Whites I'll get at the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival in September. Never grew Bogatyr.

I'm expecting my box of Shandong and Bavarian this week, I can't wait!!! The doghouse garlic is a mix of Georgian Crystal and German xtra hardy/porcelain. Those two looks pretty much the same. German White is quite a bit different.

RE: Got my garlic today

i am very impressed with ! i've been emailing them for a week and no matter how many dumb questions i ask, karen replies and is very helpful! i just placed an order.

now as far as the doghouse garlic, i have grown both Georgian Crystal (2 or 3 seasons) and German White (3 or 4 seasons). i can say that Georgian Crystal bulbs are small but German White bulbs are very large. the smallest GW are the size of the average GC. based upon this i'd think the doghouse garlic is GW.


RE: Got my garlic today


Just to clarify, the original poster described the Dog House variety incorrectly. The website describes Dog House as a mix of Georgian Crystal and German Porcelain. Contrary to the OP's comment, it's not German White.

Hope that clears up any confusion...
