Can I use this years Garlic harvest as seed for next years ?
Will this effect yield, resistance etc for the next crop?
thank you for your guidance
Hello GG, I have used my own seed for several years, but did not have a good crop this year. I'm going to get new cloves to plant and will only use them for about 3 or 4 years before replacing them
I had to give up growing garlic for space reasons but I always found it best to buy in good quality seed garlic. Plumper, healthier and certified disease-free.
Have done it but better to buy new , the reason see above
Agree - viruses and rusts can build-up if you keep replanting your own cloves, which are really just clones of the original one so carry any infection.
