Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: NEVADA, GEORGIA, IDAHO, WASHINGTON.

Sorry, Express/Priority delivery is not available for this item.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Easy To Grow!

A viewer from northeastern North Carolina

We bought a pound of Silver Rose last fall, planted it in early fall, and watched it grow and remain robustly green all winter and spring. The late spring harvest as the temps hit the high eighties yielded 5 or 6 pounds of full, beautiful heads---which keep very well in the freezer, by the way. I held back a pound and am keeping it in a cool, dark spot to plant again in a month or so. Love!

For plump, crisp garlic bursting with flavor, grow your own—it's easy.

IF YOU MUST DELAY PLANTING AFTER RECEIVING YOUR GARLIC: Store your garlic bulbs in a cool, dry place.

Spring Planting: Plant cloves in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked and threat of very hard frosts has passed. In warm southern areas, plant in late February or March. Prepare a 6′ by 2′ bed in full sun with well-drained soil. Separate the bulbs into individual cloves and plant each clove, with the tip pointing up, 2″ deep and 6″ apart. As the plants begin to grow, mound up soil around the leaves, adding several inches over the course of the season. Garlic needs evenly moist soil. Mulch the plants to conserve moisture and water weekly if there is no rain.

Garlic is ready to harvest when the lower leaves begin to brown, bend over, or dry out. Stop watering at this point. When about 60% of the leaves are dry, harvest the bulbs. Loosen the soil with a digging fork and gently pull the entire bulb out. Trim roots to 1/4—1/2″ and brush off soil. Let bulbs dry in a warm, airy place out of the sun for 2–3 weeks. Curing takes longer in wet or humid weather. For best keeping quality, store garlic in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. Spring planting of garlic can result in bulbs with excellent firmness, although the size of the bulbs may be smaller than bulbs planted in the fall.

Fall Planting: Plant cloves in the fall and then harvest full heads from each one the next year. Prepare a 6′ by 2′ bed in full sun with well-drained soil. Separate the bulbs into individual cloves and plant each clove, with the tip pointing up, 2″ deep and 6″ apart. As the plants begin to grow, mound up soil around the leaves, adding several inches over the course of the season. Garlic needs evenly moist soil. Mulch the plants to conserve moisture and water weekly in fall and spring if there is no rain. To promote strong growth, use an all-purpose balanced fertilizer in early spring. In cold-winter areas, add 4–6″ of straw or similar mulch after the ground freezes to prevent damage caused by alternate freezing and thawing of the soil.

Garlic is ready to harvest in summer, when the lower leaves begin to brown, bend over, or dry out. Stop watering at this point. When about 60% of the leaves are dry, harvest the bulbs. Loosen the soil with a digging fork and gently pull the entire bulb out. Trim roots to 1/4–1/2″ and brush off soil. Let bulbs dry in a warm, airy place out of the sun for 2–3 weeks. Curing takes longer in wet or humid weather. For best keeping quality, store garlic in a cool, dry place with good air circulation.
