Garlic - Shenzeng (Organic)

This all purpose garlic is one of the most common commercially grown in Asia for not only the garlicy flavour but production and versatility. Used in all kinds of Chinese recipes and cooking. Large cloves on the outside and a few smaller ones in the centre. Approximately, 8-10 cloves to a bulb.

We plant the garlic cloves October 20th when the soil is cool and worked. Plant 4 inches deep in very well drained soil with high fertility and organic fertilizer. The cloves will start to make roots prior to winter and will be ready to sprout early spring of the following year. Putting a straw mulch on your garlic patch at the first signs of sprouting will keep the soil moist, cool and weed free. Cut of the garlic scapes that appear early summer to allow all the growing energy to divert towards the bulbs. This variety will mature bulbs and be ready to be pulled up in mid July. Hang to dry in a warm, dark and dry place.

Limited Quantity.

All bulbs and plant material are shipped out on a Monday to allow a full week of travel through the post.
