Certified Organic Seed Garlic

Organic seed garlic for saleHeirloom Garlic

ONLY ONE TYPE IS AVAILABLE THIS YEAR.  INCHELIUM RED (Artichoke type garlic).

All garlic is Sustainably and Organically grown in accordance with Sustainable Seed Companies guidelines. Please read the following statements below before purchasing seed garlic.

Crop yields and availability are not yet available.  We will update this page once we know what varieties we will have to offer.

  • Certified Organic Garlic seed is sold by weight and not bulb count.
  • If you live in a state that can experience HOT weather in August/September we recommend buying postal insurance.  We will not be responsible for "cooked" garlic seed or its replacement unless you bought insurance. For this reason we will also only ship garlic bulbs Mon-Wed. to prevent any seed garlic getting caught in the mail system over the weekend.  Please check your mailbox often for your garlic bulbs.
  • Images of garlic varieties are for informational purposes only. The actual seed garlic that you receive may look different than images on website due to growing conditions and natural variation.
  • Yes, we do some lab testing for the presence of garlic bloat nematodes, but we believe testing to be imperfect and recommend a hot water treament of the cloves prior to planting if this is a pest of concern.  We have discovered much of CA garlic has nematodes and have now started heat treating ourselves before planting.
  • Seed garlic is only shipped within the Continental United States.
  • Garlic cannot be sent by Rush Order.
