Review: bogatyr garlic
 
Hi All,

I have been looking for a Garlic that will over winter in zone 6b
and survive a sudden warm up.

Review:

I planed them in the fall. EVERY single one made it
through the winter and actually acted like they
liked it.

And we had an early hot spell, worse than last year,
and they are still going strong!

I am so looking forward to "Better have your fire extinguisher
ready -- if you like hot garlic, you'll love this one's slow
start and building heat"

if it gets too dry make sure they get some
water once in a while. you don't want them
to dry out too early, but then once you see
signs they are finishing up you can stop
watering as then you do want them to dry out. :)

the garlic i've been growing for a long
time has no issues with cold weather through
the winter. we get well below freezing and
the ground freezes solid down a few feet.

I am being real careful to water them. My onion
seeds show sign of sprouting too, so I am
making sure hey are watered

Mine always loved the cold. What made mine fail
every year was a sudden warm spell. And I did water
them. I just had the wrong variety

hope they do well for you this year! :)

i sent some back with my sister for her
to put on her land year ago and she says the
clump they planted is still there, but only
recently is someone there who gardens and
takes care of things so i will be interested
to see if he can get it to become larger
cloves again or not.

here i can get some of the single cloves to
reach the size of my thumb or bigger. if you
don't have good soil and enough water and don't
divide the cloves up and give them space they'll
still grow but may not get big. when i replant
i always use the largest cloves from several
bulbs. this year i expect i won't have any
left as i have requests from people to send them
some so they can plant it out.

i let the scapes grow out on the bigger plants
because even they will get big enough to be worth
eating, but this year i'll keep them all to pass
along. they were my most popular item at the seed
swap even if the time was wrong for planting them.

We have been growing a lot of different garlic varieties in Zone 5B
for 30+ years. Bogatyr has been one of them since 2011 after we
purchased some bulbs at the Stratford Garlic Festival that year.
If you are looking for a nice, spicy, hot garlic, I'm sure you won't
be disappointed with Bogatyr.

I always plant the largest cloves too.

Garlic is proof that God loves us, not beer
