Garlic Vine PLANT – Heirloom – Mansoa Alliacea

It can be used as a spice and garlic substitute in salads, mashed potatoes and other dishes. The leaves can be dehydrated and ground to powder to use in cooking.

Planting and growing tips:

  1. Give it a good drink and place it in a half-shade position out of the wind.
  2. Leave it in the original pot for a few days until it recovers from the journey.
  3. Re-pot or plant into a larger pot or to the ground at the latest when the roots start to come out of the bottom holes.
  4. Watering straight after planting is essential! From then on, regular watering until the plant establishes is highly recommended.
  5. It will grow in nearly all sorts of soil but like many plants, it doesn’t like to sit in water so a well-drained position is best. All our edibles grow happily and quickly in slightly raised garden beds.
  6. You can expect flowers in the first year after planting, depending on the growing conditions. Trimming after flowering encourages new growth.

Additional notes:

  • The price is for one plant, about 15-20cm high plus the pot, naturally grown with love in my permaculture food forest in Pacific Haven QLD Australia. Sending within Australia only, not to NT WA TAS. Pick up by appointment only.
  • The potted plant image is just an example.
  • Most of our nursery plants grow in a half-shade. Introducing them to the sun slowly before replanting them to their permanent position will promote healthy growth.
  • We usually dispatch on Monday to make sure the plant arrives at your place before the weekend.
  • Do your own research before trying any new foods. Please also note our disclaimer in the footer of this page.
