Garlic, How to Grow It  is a facilitated, comprehensive, pragmatic online short course that tells you how to grow garlic in Australia's suitable climate areas. The course uses text, images, video and interaction with an expert grower to help you learn to grow garlic successfully and apply what you learn to your own growing conditions.

You start with the "garlic basics" so that you understand plant anatomy, growing needs and the varieties available and suitable to a number of climate areas where garlic is grown. You then learn all you will need to help you systematically prepare to grow, plant, harvest and cure your crop. It's a cradle to grave kind of course that should get you started as a grower regardless of whether you are growing a few plants or a thousand.

The Course Covers:
Garlic Basics: Understanding the garlic plant and Australian classifications of garlic groups and varieties, learning about garlic plant structure, characteristics and growing preferences. 

Planting and Growing: Topics include: What variety to plant in what general climate areas, how to prepare your soil for planting,  seed purchasing, deciding on the size of your garlic beds, row and plant spacing to determine how much to plant and harvest, useful tools for garlic growing,
suppressing and managing weeds, maximising plant growth and bulb development,  dealing with common pests and diseases, fertilizing and watering your crop.


Harvest and Curing of your crop: Deciding when the crop is ready for harvest, harvesting techniques and approaches, crop preparation for drying and curing.

The course is delivered via CANVAS, an online learning environment, and offers a sophisticated,  interactive online learning experience where you can pose questions, interact easily with your course facilitator and fellow growers to ask questions, join discussions and actively seek information and feedback as you learn.


You can enroll at any time. It won't matter whether you are growing for yourself, your family or for the local farmers market,  Bronwyn Richards and Helen Lynch of Wynlen House, conveners of the Braidwood Garlic Growers Group and long term garlic growers, are your facilitators and will be online with you while you learn.

Please be aware that g
arlic is not suitable for growing in equatorial or tropical climates.
