how is everyone's garlic crop coming along? It's been a relatively mild and wet winter so far. Have lifted the mulch off my garlic, noticed a couple of patches of fungal growth on the soil under the pea straw. Last season some of my crop was affected by rust and had to harvest a couple of week's earlier than normal to avoid it spreading. I'll put the mulch back on once the soil dries up a bit to keep the weeds at bay.
Todd, nearly all of the garlic that you sent me has emerged, two or three varieties still not showing yet, they might be the silverskins which don't usually come up until late August.

I have now found several keen growers for the small amount I have available, Please contact me if really keen though as I am bound to have some extra left over after planting which will otherwise be eaten.

Contact me if you grow or wish to grow heirloom/heritage garlic. We are keen on trading or gifting but will purchase interesting heritage varieties. We have limited space and grow small amounts of each, so only a very small amount will be available. Preference given to those who will preserve and pass on the seed.
