2 large bulbs of
Spanish Roja Garlic
Also known as Reina Platina in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.)
The Spanish Roja Garlic has a robust aroma with a special spicy flavor.
We use this variety for most of our recipes especially Salsas and Garlic-Rosemary Bread. When used in a pot roast our guests often try guessing what spice created that wonderfull flavor,to no avail. We alway have to tell them its the Spanish Roja and yes thay talk us out of a bulb or two to take home with them.
Spanish Roja is a hard neck variety that produces exceptionally large cloves for eating or planting.
Please note the planting guide below.
Because of the skin being very easy to peel and the outer cloves are unusually even in size, they are a favorite of the gourmet chefs for the count is reliable for their recipes
There is no comparison to HOME GROWN GARLIC.
We honor those who honor the earth
We have used the Feng Shui of Garlic for many years with an abundance of success in our gardens. The Feng Shui belief is that a clove of Garlic means having plenty of money to count. So over the years, Garlic has become an activating symbol of good fortune and wealth. The name for Garlic among the Cantonese literally means having plenty of money to count.
We most often display garlic in our kitchen. By placing a mirror behind the Garlic (with other fruits and vegetables) it is believed to double the objects and the wealth enhancing.
Words of caution do not leave clutter in view of the mirror.
BASIC GUIDE FOR PLANTING
Using high quality Garlic is always best
When you receive your bulbs in the mail please remove
Bulbs from the shipping material as the bulbs are alive,
and they need to breath. Store them in a cool, dry
place until you are ready to plant.
Just so that you know we don’t sell or use grocery store Garlic for planting.
When looking at your garden for a spot for the garlic bed keep in mind the Garlic plants are deer resistant.
· Garlic does love full sun but some shade will do.
· Plant in soil with as much drainage as possible.
· Here at rgardens we also plant in the spring before the ground starts to warm. We still get a crop of smaller bulbs.
When you are ready to plant, peel off each individual clove from the bulb. We prefer to plant in rows because this is easier for removing weeds in the spring. You can plant in flower beds, patio containers etc.
Plant each clove about 2 to 3 inches deep with the point of the clove upward and about 6 inches apart. Rows can be about 9 to 13 inches apart. Water immediately after planting.
Depending on your area you may see some green pointed shoots before spring. This is ok. But usually you won’t see the top growth until in the spring when the ground warms up. Then the tops start growing like crazy. It’s an exciting time.
Keep plants well watered through spring and early summer but not standing water. This is where your well drained soil comes in.
In the summer you will want to watch for any top flower seeds developing so you can cut them as soon as they appear as these seeds are not suitable for planting. By removing the flowers you are allowing the energy to go into the bulb growth and creating a larger bulb and larger cloves.
It’s time to stop watering when you see the tops of the leaves are turning brown and the tops begin to fall down. This will help to prevent rotting and enhance the flavor.
Its Harvest time when
When the top growth has turned brown it is time to harvest your home grown garlic.
Loosen the soil with a garden fork then you can easily remove the bulbs from the soil. The Garlic cloves can be eaten fresh or dried on the bulbs for later use. To dry your Garlic place the bulbs in a dry, well ventilated location away from the direct sun light. Then clean the soil and store them for later use. We have found it is easier to remove the soil when it has thoroughly dried.
Remember to Fung Shui your garden with plenty of garlic!
Keep in mind the best varieties of Garlic is a personal thing with all gardeners. It’s great to try a couple of varieties each year until you discover what works best for you.
