How to Sow

  • In the South, plant cloves in the fall for a spring harvest. In the North, plant softneck varieties in early spring for a summer harvest and hardneck varieties in fall for a spring harvest.
  • Plant cloves in well-drained soil rich in organic matter and full sun when you receive your bulbs. Do not hold your bulbs until the next planting season.
  • Each bulb is made up of several sections called “cloves” held together by a thin, papery covering. Before planting break the cloves apart and plant each separately.
  • Choose a location in full sun with well-drained soil where you did not plant garlic the previous year.
  • Work organic matter into your soil at least 6-8 inches deep, removing stones, then level and smooth.
  • Plant in rows 1-2 feet apart, 1 inch deep and 4 inches apart. Firm lightly and water gently.
  • Plant cloves with the pointed side up.
  • Spring planted garlic emerges in 14-21 days. Fall planted garlic may not emerge until spring.
  • If the garlic emerges in the fall and a heavy frost is expected, mulch tender greens for protection.

How to Grow

How to Grow

  • Keep weeds under control during the growing season. Weeds compete with plants for water, space and nutrients, so control them by either cultivating often or use a mulch to prevent their seeds from germinating. Avoid disturbing the soil around the plants when weeding.
  • Keep plants well watered during dry periods to promote rapid, uninterrupted growth. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water. It’s best to water with a drip or trickle system that delivers water at low pressure at the soil level. If you water with overhead sprinklers, water early in the day so the foliage has time to dry off before evening, to minimize disease problems. Keep the soil moist but not saturated.
  • Monitor for pests and diseases. Check with your local Cooperative Extension Service for pest controls recommended for your area.

Harvest and Preserving Tips

  • Harvest when the foliage begins to yellow. At this time bend back the tops to hasten yellowing and drying of the tops. Feel around the top of the bulb to make sure the cloves have formed.
  • Pull up the plants and allow them to dry in the sun for a few hours. Spread them out in a well-ventilated location until the tops are thoroughly dry, about 3-4 weeks.
  • Cut off the tops 1-2 inches above the bulbs, or braid the tops together for softneck varieties. Store loose bulbs in a dry, cool, airy place in baskets, or hang braided garlic strings.
  • Garlic may be frozen, make into vinegar, or made into garlic salt.

Garlic, Shilla is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zero return We planted 29 different varieties of garlic in October of 2015, including Maiskij, another hardneck turban variety; of the 40 Shilla cloves planted none grew, same with Maiskij. We had success with the other non turban varieties, including those purchased from Burpee. Perhaps there was something about southeast Michigan's 2015-2016 winter that was not favorable to turban varieties. Regardless, we won't plant Shilla (and Maiskij) this coming season.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced cloves for seed I bought this to grow last fall and was surprised when the bag I paid around $15 showed up with only a few cloves in it. Many of the heads I grew ended up splitting but the ones that didn't were good size. Also, this was the dirtiest of the varieties I grew (dirt clung even to inner layers after cured).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for middle TN I bought this last year and planted in October. It grew through the winter and provided lots of delicious scapes followed by large, uniformly-sized bulbs that matured early and dried well. Very delicious roasted. My only regret is that I didn't buy more!
