The first time we grew Siberian a couple of years ago, One of our gardens was attacked by a plague of grasshoppers just as they were starting to forms bulbs and they ate the entire garden to the ground, and then went into the ground after the bulbs. The only thing left standing was the Siberian garlic. The Siberians were barely touched - I have no idea why. We lost 24,000 plants of 30 different kinds of garlic in less than a week. A lot of hard work for nothing. I must have offended Mother Nature the week before as I gloated over what a beautiful crop I was going to harvest. Will the Siberians survive the next onslaught of locusts? - I doubt it.
