Larsen to explain how to grow organic garlic

In the upcoming Green Thumbs Garden Tips series, Pam Larsen presents “Growing Great Organic Garlic” from noon-1 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 13, via the Zoom platform.

A link to her talk is available on the WSU Clallam County Extension website at extension.wsu.edu/clallam.

In her comprehensive lecture, Larsen will discuss the health benefits of garlic and how to maximize them. She will provide information on soft neck and hard neck varieties and how to decide which category might work best for your garden.

She will also discuss cultivating this low maintenance crop, and diseases that affect growing garlic in the north Olympic Peninsula’s maritime climate.

Attendees will learn when to harvest, how to prepare this vegetable for maximum storage life and drying options to retain the bulbs’ benefits.

Larsen has grown organic garlic locally for more than 15 years. She is the founder of Sequim Organic Gardeners, co-founder of Sequim Community Organic Gardens and a published author in “The American Gardener” magazine. Additionally, she is the creator of “The Rainshadow Planting Guide,” which lets gardeners know when to schedule vegetable planting in Sequim’s unique gardening climate.

WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners sponsors the Green Thumbs Garden Tips education lectures, held on the second and fourth Thursday each month through October (in November, December and January, one lecture is offered).

For more information, call 360-565-2679.
