Garlic, Softneck- Dixon
We owe this garlic in our lineup to Meadowlark Hearth, our mentors in seedsaving. Beth and Nathan introduced us and we've been attempting to bring into being in WI and the Upper Midwest. Softneck is not traditionally grown here easily, but this one shows potential. They typically have a MUCH better multiplication ability than hardneck, typically having three times as many cloves per head. Softneck also tend to peel easier too. Softneck is also braidable!
One pound will yield 60-80 heads. Feed the bed a good amount of compost in the Fall and plant Oct-Nov to harvest the following July/Aug. Spacing is typically 8" in all directions.
