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. Engeland covers everything from history and evolution to site and soil preparation, storage, and marketing: information on which varieties to plant, when and how to plant, when to fertilize (and when not to fertilize), when to prune and harvest, plus how to store, market, and process the crop.
