Garlic Seed Information

New Zealand - Printanor Garlic Seed

This variety of garlic is a home gardener's favourite. Printanor garlic seed has firm cloves and has excellent keeping qualities.

The best planting time for garlic is mid June to August. Good drainage is essential to prevent bulbs from rotting. Apply Bone flour or Blood and Bone before planting. Break a garlic bulb up into individual cloves, it is important you do this the same day of planting as the clove will dehydrate and may not produce as well. Garlic competes poorly with weeds, try to keep as weed free as possible. Water moderately. 

Garlic Printanor Seed

Planting: Plant clove 2-4cm deep and 10cm apart.  

Harvesting: Approx 7 months. Once tips of the leaves begin to yellow and the base of the stem goes soft. 

Handle with care as freshly dug garlic bulbs are easily damaged. 

Available in pack size: 100g and 200g.
