Cindy MoonRose and Martin Holsinger have been growing garlic for 7 years or so. There is extra and they want more garlic to be grown in Nashville ( instead of Mexico or China). Growing your own garlic is a simple move you can make towards local food production and improving family health.




(just remember that beans don't like garlic or other onion, allium, family members)

This weekend will be warm, making nice weather for you to take home some cloves and soil amendment to start some garlic at your home! This mid November is about the last opportunity to get garlic in.

We will look at the Rabbit Hole Hollow Garlic patch, practice planting a clove, and discuss the virtues of garlic!

Each participant can take home enough garlic to get 12 plants (or more depending on attendence). If you want to plant more, you can purchase bulbs at stores or farmer's markets.

Cindy will be purchasing supplies for  putting together a planting mixture (soil amendment) of bonemeal, compost, and other slow release organic fertilizer.

Please bring a donation for garlic, and to cover the cost of the planting mixture, etc.

Bring notebook and pen,

something to carry garlic home in,

something to carry planting mixture in.

      It certainly won't yield as well as it would if you'd planted it in the Fall, but you will likely get something if you plant it now! More than if you don't plant it at all! :-)

    Hi Cindy!
    What a gracious offer to share some garlic love! I can't come Saturday morning but was wondering if there was another time (even Saturday afternoon) when I could get a quick primer? I have a garden and would love to add garlic...

    Hi Cindy! I'm new to growing my own food and would love to know if garlic is a good place to start?? Also, what is the best time to plant? And can it be grown indoors? Thanks!

      Garlic is one of the easiest plants to grow. It can be planted, anytime from august through about mid Nov. (drought conditions in summer or extreme heat would be a bad time to plant garlic. It could be grown indoors in a pot. It would apprieciate a south facing window. Usually it is grown outdoors.

    I have some books with garlic references for pest control sprays, and medicinal use. Attendees can look up stuff and we can all share the info. SO bring a notebook too!

    I just checked. I have enough extra to make plantings of 500 or more bulbs! So depending on how many attend, folks can take home enough to plant 100 or 12 dozen! ( or less). Row planting is with 5 inch spacing. A 6 foot diameter circle will hole 90- 100.
