Hi Len,

Penny Woodward's book, Garlic, that she published a couple of years back is a good resource. She suggests 'Italian Pink' is one of the widest grown cultivars by Queenslanders.

She also put together a wonderful website in association with the Garlic Growers Association. Check it out http://www.australiangarlic.net.au/.

It's got loads of great info for growing garlic.

Cheers,
John
