Garlic in Atlanta area

Does anyone have a source of garlic to grow here in the Atlanta area ... not the internet, but local? There must be some nursery that stocks this. Any info as to the best for success here would be great.

Bumping.

I'd like to know too, Celeste. Don't remember if 'store bought' garlic can be divided into cloves and planted.

Hi Rosie and Celeste,

I went up to Loganberry Farm in Cleveland, GA for the second year to buy local garlic. They hold a Garlic Fest every year and their locally grown garlic is $14/pound. They have 6 or 8 varieties and I've been really happy with it. The farm is open on Saturdays until 3pm until sometime in mid-October.

If you go, plan to pick up some other wonderful locally grown goodies - winter squash, southern peas, honey, sorgum... etc. No interest other than being an enthusiastic customer!

Loganberry Farm sounds like a great place to visit. Thanks for sharing, Cindy. I'd love to go to the Garlic Fest next year. Maybe you could remind us?????

Have you planted any of their garlic at home?

I bought some garlic at Lowes last fall to plant. Also some onion sets.

In past, I have also divided cloves from the grocery and planted with success. Buy the largest ones you can find for better plants.
