With 86 varieties of organic seed garlic, I have something for everyone. Many varieties are heirloom or hard to find elsewhere. I also sell certified organic garlic bulbils.
Norwegian Creek Farm is certified organic by PACS (Pacific Agricultural Certification Society).
Grown on the family farm that has been in the family for about 120 years, I strive to produce healthy, high quality seed garlic. I have a large land base and am able to move our garlic field every year to a new location. This ensures that the incidence of garlic diseases is minimized, and consequently the certified organic seed garlic is exceptionally clean and healthy.
Growing from bulbils is a good way to renew your crop or get an economical start into growing garlic. It can take a few years to obtain full size bulbs that are suitable for market, but the result is healthy vigorous plants.
I sell seed garlic according to size categories and I grade each bulb accordingly. The size ranges are as follows :
Small : 0.8-1.2 oz (approx. 13-18 bulbs/lb) - $2.00/bulb
Medium: 1.2-2.0 oz (8 -12 bulbs/lb) - $3.25/bulb
Large : 2.0-3.2 oz (5-8 bulbs/lb) - $4.50/bulb
Extra-large: 3.2 oz or more (4-5 bulbs/lb) - $6.00/bulb
Bulk garlic per lb (average 8 bulbs/lb ) - $24.00/lb
Shipping charge - $20.00 per order flat fee. If actual shipping charges are under $20.00, the difference will be refunded by e-transfer.
I start shipping organic seed garlic by Canada Post around the beginning of September. Tracking numbers are provided when the order is shipped. I try to ship within a couple of days of ordering, but if there is a heavy backlog shipping may take longer, but you will get your order in time for planting.
Each type of garlic produces a certain number of cloves per bulb that are generally within a specific range, although there are always exceptions. To the right (above on mobile devices) is a chart detailing typical harvest times, average number of plantable cloves per bulb, and average number of plantable bulbils per umbel.
You can use the above information to roughly calculate how many bulbs of seed garlic you will need to provide the desired number of cloves for planting.
I pack garlic orders in paper bags. Each variety is clearly labeled in its own bag. I use heavy corrugated cardboard boxes for shipping,
Please check your order once received to verify that it is correct and in good condition. If there is a problem, contact me immediately and Iwill do my best to correct it. If you must store your order for any length of time before planting, it is a good idea to put the bags in an open box or tray with plenty of air circulation.
Payment for your order can be made by PayPal (follow the prompts on the checkout). You can use a credit card on PayPal, no account required. You can also phone or email us to make other arrangements. I accept cheques, e-transfers or will take credit card orders by phone. For your own security, do not email credit card info.
Not sure of what you need? Phone or email me. Perhaps I can offer advice.

For the present time I am discouraging farm visits in light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation in BC. Online orders will be accepted in season and I can make arrangements for orders that are being picked up at the farm.
