We're saying a temporary farewell to our beloved Purple Glazer garlic! While stunning and flavorful, it appears our Montana high elevation and extremely frosty winters might be a bit too much for this beauty to thrive. We haven't given up hope though! We're constantly trialing new varieties, and hope to revisit Purple Glazer in the future when we have some acclimation magic under our belts. In the meantime, explore our other amazing hardneck garlics that flourish in Montana's unique climate!  Likely Purple Glazer would grow best in USDA Hardiness Zone 5, 6 or 7.

Purple Glazer is a very popular hardneck garlic and is prized for its beautiful color and large size.  This garlic has a long storage potential and strong field performance in cold climates.   Bogatyr can produce big bulbs with fat, easy-to-peel cloves.   Skins are very thick and tightly wrapped, with a creamy-white appearance.    



Approximately 1 pound of our Purple Glazer equates to around 5 - 6 individual bulbs.  Each bulb has between 4 - 7 cloves.  In simple terms, 1 pound of Purple Glazer should yield approximately 36 individual plants.

  • Bogatyr is a garlic planted in the fall, soon after the first frost and a few weeks before the first hard frost. The seed garlic bulbs should be taken apart into separate cloves not long before planting. Hardneck garlic requires vernalization (exposure to a period of cold temperatures) before or after planting. Plant cloves two inches deep, the pointed side up. Garlic does best with a loose soil with very good drainage and a pH of 7.0 optimum. Plant in an area with full sun exposure.
