It’s that time of year. Once again, our gardener Jack Petrovic is going to fill the Bottleworks Crown Room with the aroma of fresh garlic. You can join Jack in his latest “Grow your Own Garlic” event on Saturday August 17th at 7pm at the Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood. Learn the differences in garlic, how and when to plant, what to plant and why, how to care for, harvest, cure, store and braid.
There will be several varieties to try. See which one you like best and then grow it yourself at home.
Never settle for supermarket garlic again. Your garlic can be better than that of the finest chefs. And when you’re growing it yourself, you’ll never have to pay for it again. Trade with your friends. Scout the markets for new varieties to try. Develop a passion and skill that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Remember, the more garlic you grow, the more friends you will have.
The event is FREE and well attended, so be on time. Seating is limited.
