by Ron L. Engeland, 213 pages, 6x9, softcover. Garlic is the world’s second most important allium crop. Whether garlic is your passion, or just your avocation, you’ll enjoy this book. Engeland, an expert who grew and sold more than 100 strains and even marketed a paper he made from the discarded bulb wrappers, wrote the definitive guide to growing garlic. He devotes thirty pages to varietal differences, adds a fascinating chapter on history, and provides in-depth cultural information on growing, harvesting, storing and marketing garlic. The chapter on pests and diseases has practical suggestions for minimizing and containing the damage.
