Growing Garlic 101


Growing Garlic 101 - Virtual Workshop

  • Thursday, September 30, 2021, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Garlic is one of the easiest plants to grow in your vegetable plot and fall is the perfect season for planting! Planting in October works well in our climate because it allows the garlic to establish its roots prior to winter dormancy. Although easy to grow, producing high-quality garlic with large, tasty, full-flavored cloves while avoiding pests and diseases requires skill and knowledge.

During the workshop you will learn about:

  • Planting, growing, harvesting, curing, and storing
  • Common pests & diseases
  • Comparison of Hardneck and Softneck garlic, their strengths & weaknesses  
  • Growing for markets - considering to sell at farmers’ markets or roadside stands  
  • Ask a farmer - Ed Fraser, Fraser’s Garlic Farm will share his experience of growing and marketing organic garlic produced on his farm.
