A Winter Hardy Hello

The fall-planted garlic just needed a few seasonally warm days to get growing. Any green on the brown landscape is a welcome sight.

We’ll try to get it to flower and produce some seeds this year. How does one get garlic to make seeds?  Hard neck garlic reproduces itself in three ways, bulb division, bulbils from topsets and Garlic True Seed .

Our garlics are rarities said to be brought here from the old world by immigrants. We hope that our garlic strains are still capable of producing seeds.  It’s important that subsequent generations of garlic retain this sustainable trait and for growers to shift back toward some garlic seed production.
