Organic Silver Rose Garlic - silverskin garlic (soft neck) - Rose-colored cloves in very smooth bright-white bulbs. Beautiful garlic to braid! The longest-storing garlic we sell. Like all fast-growing silverskin garlic, this type is frequently planted in the spring. Very popular in western and southern US and in France and Italy. There are 12-15 cloves per head. Sold in 3 oz packets.
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.
