we sourced the elephant garlic seed this season from pirate pickles from wanaka. we planted in May2019 and harvest in february2020. we had three beds totally around 500 plants. the beds were formed and feed over approximately 6months prior to planting. they received a generous application of BD compost post planting, seaweed tea and rock minerals high in calcium and magnesium while the seedlings were young. the garlic received one horsetail and nettle tea spray once mature. we were blessed with a warm and dry season especially during bulb formation.
