Mild French -Silverskin Garlic (softneck) - Naturally grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or chemical pesticides by a local grower. Milder then other silverskins and an excellent keeper. This is one of the best silverskins for clove size. Large cloves averaging 14-16 cloves per bulb. Buff outer wrappers cover skins that are blush pink to reddish pink. Bulk: type the amount of pounds wanted into the quantity box.
Where winters are milder (like our area) garlic is planted from October through January.
Garlic will make the largest bulbs in fertile soil with lots of organic matter, so amend your soil as nessesary.
Break the bulbs into individual cloves and plant 4-6" apart in rows that are 12" apart. Aprox 1" deep, root side down.
Fertilize in spring with a little chicken manure and a slow release organic fertilizer like cottonseed meal or Cal Organic 7-5-7.
Harvest is based on the type of garlic. Once the tops start to die down usually June-July.
