After a recent trip to north-central California and a stop at the famous Garlic World retail shop, it prompted thoughts about growing our own garlic. It's actually quite easy to grow but there are certain varieties that grow better in each region so check with local extension offices for their recommendations for your area.

Where to buy 

National Garden Bureau's members offer quite a selection of garlic varieties so have fun perusing all the options. Be sure to order soon, as many items are already sold out:

Botanical Interests features several garlic assortments so you can try multiple varieties in smaller quantities to decide which is your favorite.



Burpee not only offers a large variety of garlic to choose from but a how-to video that explains the basics.

Dominion Seed House has both a California White and Elephant garlic.
