Its widely available in North America but can't find a supplier here.

I'll go with your suggestion MR, thanks.

So one last question. Garlic seems quite expensive for a bulb or two, so am I able to save a couple of home grown ones next year to replant more garlic? Or does quality reduce that way?

Thanks.


Most farms save their own seed. You'll just want to save nice large bulbs, that don't look unhealthy in anyway.

Big concerns would be if you had white rot, garlic bloat nematode, and maybe bulb mite less so.

If the site's been free of onions/garlic for a while you'll probably not have any problems.

Thanks Slim.

As far as I know it hasn't had either grown there in quite a few years.
