Seasonal seed garlic has historically shipped toward the end of September and into early October.

All garlic undergoes extensive testing to ensure our customers receive the highest quality product.

Before seed garlic is shipped, our Quality Assurance team performs a visual inspection to check for any signs of rot, mold, or loose cloves and skin.

Following this visual inspection, samples of each garlic variety are randomly selected and sent to an independent laboratory for several tests, including for the detection of any disease presence that might affect storage, soil health, or future crop viability.

Once lab results are satisfactory, we begin packing and shipping garlic. Our team works to ensure that garlic arrives to our customers with plenty of time to plant it. Learn how and when to plant seed garlic by reading articles in the West Coast Seeds Academy:
