I didn't really plan on growing garlic this year. But I kind of changed my mind. If I decide to do it I want to grow something different.
1. Is it too late?
2. What varieties would you recommend?

How will this variety do in Southern California, (inland specifically in sunset zone 18. I know sometimes hardnecks may not do so well in this climate, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve planted some regular california early from the farmers market that was grown in this area but would prefer a few different varieties to test out. Thanks

David, Softneck garlics, such as the California Early you have grown, have a greater tolerance for warm springs and summers. You do have cold winters in Sunset zone 18 and if you have a cool spring in 2012 a porcelain hardneck like Ã¢â‚¬ËœMusicÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ should do well. It will depend on the year and on the microclimate on your property. I also suggest you check with your Master Gardeners to see if they have comments on the varieties that do best.
