I have been trying to locate some Music cloves for planting for the Spring. MaryJane is sold out and so is every other place I have tried.

Any leads? I really wanted to plant garlic this fall, maybe I am out of luck. Hope not!

Thanks!

Karen Maria, I also wanted seed garlic from MJF and when they weren't selling their garlic this year, but planting all for next year's crop, I bought garlic from Aldi and put 100 cloves in my raised beds. I hope you find what you are looking for, but if not try a few from the grocery store and see how you like it. Let us know what you end up doing.

(edited) Thanks Sara!

I ended up buying the garlic from Etsy. It was on the $ side but I really wanted that variety.

Here's the link in case anyone is interested:

I'm not sure if they have any left this year or not. Since you already got some maybe next year you can check out https://www.anniesheirloomseeds.com/
Great place to get all kinds of wonderful seeds!!!

Do you have a Farmers Market close to you? I simply bought some bulbs for cooking use & then some extras for planting. The farm uses no pesticides-organic though not necessarily CERTIFIED as such due to the expense. Hopefully next year I will not have to buy much at all! I don't think you necessarily have to use SEED GARLIC. The lady I bought my cloves from says she just saves a few of her bulbs each year to plant for the next season's harvest. Hope you can find some . . .

If you are still looking, try Territorial Seed Company. I know they carry Music but not sure if they have any left.

Thanks all! I guess seed garlic is the wrong term, I assume you would say cloves for growing instead. :)

Actually seed garlic is a correct term! I just meant I donít think you need to have garlic cloves that are labeled specifically seed garlic. As long as cloves are natural (not treated with pesticides or chemicals) I think you can plant them.
