Penny Woodward is coming to Altona Library in October and hopefully she will bring along her amazing new book on Garlic - she advised this morning on 3CR's gardening show that it is now available. Penny has done a lot of work on identifying the different cultivars and it looks like this book will help all of us backyard gardeners to choose the garlic best suited to our patch - The book has taken me three years to write, but has been much longer in it’s gestation. It covers everything from more than 50 different cultivars of garlic, to guidelines for growing organic garlic around the country as well as interviews with twelve Australian garlic growers telling you how and where they grow their garlic. There are also recipes for cooking, preserving and smoking garlic and even making your own black garlic as well as medicinal uses and an extensive list of growers and suppliers. Register here for the session at Altona Library.
