How to Care
Soil for garlic growing needs to be well cultivated and well drained. The soil is essential to successfully grow garlic so add Organic Compost at time of preparation.
General Garden Food of 200g/m² prior to planting is needed.
Plant garlic between May to June. Plant cloves 5-8 cm deep and 10cm apart.
Harvest in mid December when the tops fall over. Lift and dry thoroughly in a well ventilated sunny area for 1-2 weeks. Once dry, hang in bundles of 6-8 in a dark, ventilated place.
Garlic keeps up to 1 year.
- White – most common
- Elephant – larger, mild flavour
