Hardneck Seed Garlic


Thank you for a great garlic season! As of Friday, September 29th, 2023 all garlic and shallot varieties are sold out and will not return to stock until Aug/Sept 2024.

We are excited to offer garlic varieties that fit with our mission of Bringing Biodiversity Back! We have experience growing all of these varieties ourselves, finding each of them to be productive, interesting, and delicious. We invite you to dive deeper into garlic diversity and try some of these great varieties this year!

In addition to growing shallots and garlic right here at Adaptive Seeds, we are pleased to now offer certified organic seed garlic produced by Sauvie Island Growers in Portland, Oregon, Persephone Farm in Lebanon, Oregon, and Garlicana in collaboration with Myrtle Creek Farm in Myrtle Creek, Oregon.

Garlic is a wonderful and easy to grow crop that is best planted September through November in our part of Oregon and throughout much of the US. For growing info, check out our ‘Adaptive Guide to Growing Garlic‘ over on The Seed Ambassadors blog.
