Nanny G's Garlic
Hi my name is Georgina Byrnes and I am known as Nanny G's Garlic. My husband Patrick and I started growing garlic in 2015 with just 10 kgs of seed and this year we have planted 125 kgs. Our garlic is grown using organic principles and totally chemical free.
Our property of 153ha is situated in a valley in the Great Dividing Mountain Range between Braidwood and Bungendore in New South Wales. Our climate is more temperate than both these towns, getting fewer and less-severe frosts. However, we are more than 900m above sea level and we do get snow some seasons. My garlic patch is relatively sheltered from westerly winds and it is surrounded by native tree covered mountains. My focus started with Monaro Purple (Turban), Spanish Roja (Creole) and Dunganski (Standard Purple Stripe) but I'm always interested in trying something new.
