Garlic I have grown purple Australian garlic over the past 4 years. I plant the toes on 1 April and pull bulbs early October.This works for my climate. It is trial and error on the pulling up, as too soon they will not keep. I have some bulbs if anyone wishes for me to send. Please email hobbfarm (at) yahoo dot com dot au

Hi there, I know it has been years since you posted about these garlic cloves. But I will try my luck anyway. I have been trying to grow garlics for the past few years but they all eventually rot here in Adelaide. I can give you my address or send to you a prepaid envelope; and I am willing to pay to cover your costs too. Thanks so much!

I am also in Adelaide, and wanting to try Garlic. Hopefully you will still get this (as it's been over 12mths since you posted). Being in Adeliade, may I ask when you plant/harvest, and any other ideas that may assist me (ie glass house/ in the open/ type of fertilizer if used - natural (cow/horse/chicken etc), and any other tips you would suggest. Regards.

I will be grateful if you can send me some of your garlic bulbs. Thanks. And regards. Richard (Check under plant names for your zone. We do not supply seeds -Liz)

No Richard, that is not the growing season for garlic. People plant the cloves in April to June. We normally harvest around November to December. The old farmers used to say plant on the shortest day (June 21) harvest longest day (December 21).
