Workshop: Growing Garlic

October 12, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This lecture on growing garlic by local garden guru Ron Kujawski—comes just in time for planting a garlic crop. Ron will inspire, entertain, and inform gardeners about how to grow the best garlic in town. Each student will go home with a selection of cloves of Ron’s favorite picks for Berkshire County and the local environs. Ron will cover the subject from clove to scape, from selecting varieties and optimal growing conditions, to planting and cultivation, as well as curing and storage. Attendees will be given insight into growing other allium species, including shallots, leeks and onions. 

Ron Kujawski is the former Landscape and Nursery Specialist for UMass Cooperative Extension. He is a garden writer, educator, and researcher in IPM, plant nutrition, and soil science. He teaches for the horticultural industry throughout New England.
