GARLIC - 2018 fall - Allium ophioscorodon. The distinctive wrapper leaves of these big bulbs are slightly purple. Red Russian garlic has the ability to withstand soggy winter soils better than any of the others. Expect between two and eight substantial cloves per bulb of this flavourful heirloom garlic variety. Separate the cloves and plant them with the pointed end up in September or October. Harvest the following July and follow our curing instructions to get the most out of storage. Once the plants are 2/3 to 3/4 withered above ground, stop watering for a few days. Then harvest by loosening the soil around each bulb and gently pulling on the stem. If the bulb does not lift easily, continue loosening the soil.
