Hi, was just wondering if anyone here is working with true garlic seeds.  Here's an article on getting garlic to produce true seeds.

Getting a landrace together sounds like a good thing to get going for extra health and vigor, and I wonder what potential there might be for hybrids.  Other ideas?

I ran across this at Adaptive Seeds.  They sell them, but not at the moment and ask that you check back in August for true seed.

http://www.rasacreekfarm.com/how-to-grow-garlic/true-garlic-seed This site seems to detail how you can get garlic to flower.

Suppose you could mix some varieties that you like by only forcing one flower from each type.
