Item # 32760-BAG-1/2LB
$18.95

Discovered at the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington State!

A delicious heirloom garlic with a mild flavor.
267-451 days. Inchelium Red is a mid-season heirloom garlic with a mild flavor that's especially good for baking, roasting, or blending with mashed potatoes. A national taste-test winner in the softneck division, this large (2 inches or more), top-quality garlic is also prized for its long storage life -- 6 to 9 months. And its long stems make it perfect for braiding.

Inchelium Red was discovered on the Colville Indian Reservation in northern Washington and has quickly gained popularity. It's quite easy to grow, having very few problems with pests. Plant it in rich, well-drained soil -- garlic doesn't do well in dense soils with few nutrients. You should separate the cloves just prior to planting, placing them 4 to 6 inches apart and covering them with 1 to 2 inches of soil. In the north, garlic is best planted in October, while southern regions should plant between November and January. Inchelium Red is a wonderful garlic that we're quite sure you'll want to plant year after year! 1/2 pound.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
