Garlic should be planted when you are about 4-6 weeks from a hard freeze. Please inspect bulbs upon receipt and notify us immediately of any concerns. If you can't plant right away, keep the bulbs in a dry spot with good air circulation, as diseases can develop on garlic that is not stored properly.
