Review: bogatyr garlic

Hi All,
I have been looking for a Garlic that will over winter in zone 6b and survive a sudden warm up.
Review: bogatyr garlic https://www.groworganic.com/bogatyr-garlic-conventionally-grown-lb.html
I planed them in the fall. EVERY single one made it through the winter and actually acted like they liked it.
And we had an early hot spell, worse than last year, and they are still going strong!

I am so looking forward to "Better have your fire extinguisher ready -- if you like hot garlic, you'll love this one's slow start and building heat"

if it gets too dry make sure they get some water once in a while. you don't want them to dry out too early, but then once you see signs they are finishing up you can stop watering as then you do want them to dry out. :)
the garlic i've been growing for a long time has no issues with cold weather through the winter. we get well below freezing and the ground freezes solid down a few feet.

I am being real careful to water them. My onion seeds show sign of sprouting too, so I am making sure hey are watered

Mine always loved the cold. What made mine fail every year was a sudden warm spell. And I did water them. I just had the wrong variety

hope they do well for you this year! :)
i sent some back with my sister for her to put on her land year ago and she says the clump they planted is still there, but only recently is someone there who gardens and takes care of things so i will be interested to see if he can get it to become larger cloves again or not.
here i can get some of the single cloves to reach the size of my thumb or bigger. if you don't have good soil and enough water and don't divide the cloves up and give them space they'll still grow but may not get big. when i replant i always use the largest cloves from several bulbs. this year i expect i won't have any left as i have requests from people to send them some so they can plant it out.
i let the scapes grow out on the bigger plants because even they will get big enough to be worth eating, but this year i'll keep them all to pass along. they were my most popular item at the seed swap even if the time was wrong for planting them.

We have been growing a lot of different garlic varieties in Zone 5B for 30+ years. Bogatyr has been one of them since 2011 after we purchased some bulbs at the Stratford Garlic Festival that year. If you are looking for a nice, spicy, hot garlic, I'm sure you won't be disappointed with Bogatyr.
