In 2017, we were lucky enough to buy seeds from the American plant breeder Ivan Buddenhagen, who at the end of his life worked to get the garlic to start setting seeds again.


We have some plants that may be promising.

There are only a few top bulbs, so we sell a few lots of the best varieties to those who want to try.

Allium sativum L.



Garlic evolved in central Asia, and is found in two main groups:

  • hardneck which forms top sets
  • softneck which does not form a top sets, but often one or more “intermediate sets” in the middle of the stem if the plant is allowed to stand for a long time

Wikipedia writes (as of Nov-23) that hardneck is an accepted botanical variety, but according to GBIF it is now included under Allium sativum L., and the name Allium sativum var. ophioscorodon (Link) Döll has synonym status. That softneck is considered an accepted variety is, however, correct: Allium sativum var. sativum L. The article further mentions Allium longicuspis Regel as the wild form, but it is now also included under Allium sativum L.
