Living in DC/MD where climate change has given us a little more snow than normal. Starting veggie garden next month (indoors) and need referral for onion sets (early, red/purple) and garlic sets (prefer Italian purple). Intend for early summer harvest (onion and garlic) and storage, fall replanting of garlic. Also plan to use some around my tomato cages to discourage skunk and woodchuck guests. Advice about companion planting gladly accepted, but first I need a reliable source of good quallity bulbs. Happy growing!

Look at the top of your screen in the blue area for the word 'Tools & Apps', click and look down the list for 'Green Pages', click. That will take you to what is called the Green Pages which is a list of places recommended by the NGA members.

Then, using the search box on the upper right, type in onions to see that list; then garlic to see that one.

Hope this helps.

Others will be along to give you more specific answers.

I have bought garlic and seed potatoes from Irish Eyes Garden Seed and am very satisfied. They sell onions, too. I just looked at their entry in the Green Pages and it says they sell mostly iris. They don't sell ANY iris!!!

I have proposed the correction, but for now it still says "iris". Just don't believe it. Smiling
