Growing Great Garlic

The Definitive Guide for Organic Gardeners and Small Farmers

by Ron L. Engeland

The first garlic book written specifically for organic gardeners and small-scale farmers

Growing Great Garlic is the definitive grower's guide written by a small scale farmer who makes his living growing over 200 strains of garlic. Commercial growers will want to consult this book regularly.

The author tells us:

  • which strains to plant
  • when to fertilize
  • when to plant
  • when to prune flower stalks
  • how to plant
  • when to harvest
    Plus, how to store, market, and process the crop.

Growing Great Garlic makes a genuine contribution in the field of garlic classification that will help the public recognize several distinct varietal types of garlic.
