Garlic, Silver Rose

Allium sativum
HOW TO GROW GARLIC, SOFTNECK

Garlic thrives in well-drained, rich soil. Work a 1 inch layer of compost into beds before planting. Divide garlic bulbs into cloves just before planting, and keep as much garlic skin on as possible. Do not peel. Plant cloves at 6” apart, 2-3” deep. Make sure to plant the garlic clove with the tip facing upwards towards the sky, and the root downwards into the ground. Mulch with several inches of straw.Plant 6-8 weeks before the ground freezes in Northern regions, or plant as late as March in regions without a freeze. In colder regions, apply another inch or two of compost in the spring to boost the garlic’s growth. As harvest time approaches (begin checking in the late June), reduce or stop watering to prevent mold on the bulb. Harvest the bulbs when the top 4-5 leaves are slightly green and the lower leaves are dry. Each leaf represents one layer of skin over the bulb. Dry and cure the bulbs in a dry, cool, shaded location for 3-4 weeks, and then cut the foliage and root hairs from the bulbs. Store in a cool, dry place.Try braiding softneck garlic by keeping the leaves on the plant! Add fresh culinary herbs such as sage and rosemary, as well as flowers such as statise, and strawflowers into the braids, and they will dry beautifully. Soil pH 6-7.

Silver Rose is a vigorous and productive softneck, adaptable to many growing environments. It stores exceptionally long because of their many wrapper layers. The flavor is rich and bold, yet mild in pungency. After a few months of storage, the flavor becomes hotter when used raw. The bulbs are large and firm, with silver rose colored skin. They are great for braiding! Harvest is very late. 8-12 cloves per bulb. Tags: Harvest: Late, Color: Silver Pink, Size: Medium, Specialty: Storage, Season: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer.

Garlic has been cultivated for at least 5000 years. It is native to Central Asia and Northeastern Iran, but was carried to most parts of the world as a pungent herb and medicine, where it was cultivated into many distinct and subtle varieties. The word “garlic” comes from the Old English word “garleac”, which means “spear leek”.

Feral Farm Certified Organic by CCOF Seed grower since 2015
I started growing seed commercially as an apprentice at the Organic Farm School in the Puget Sound in Washington. I already loved growing vegetables, but taking a plant all the way through its life cycle felt like a special kind of honor, and I quickly saw the value in sustaining organic, important, and rare plant varieties and participating in sustainable food systems in this way. I moved to Oregon in 2015 and have been growing my organic seed farming business over the last four seasons by renting land from existing farms and slowly taking on higher volumes and more varieties. I’m currently growing 1.6 acres of certified organic seed crops and heirloom garlic.
