Autumn Planting Pack x 4 Bulbs

Seed Garlic for Autumn planting. This variety planting pack is a selection of garlic types that, in our experience, grow best from Autumn planting - mid September through to mid December.

This pack contains:
Extra Early Wight x 1 bulb: Allium Sativum Ophioscorodon (hardneck) - large white hardneck, with a crisp fresh flavour. (If Extra Early Wight is unavailable, this will be substituted for Rose Wight which is a similar variety of garlic)
Early Purple Wight x 1 bulb: Allium Sativum (softneck) - Large purple bulbs with very wide leafy growth. Fresh, zingy flavours perfect in a salad. The first taste of new season garlic, en primeur. This variety may be substituted for an extra bulb of Extra Early Wight, at the time of dispatch.
Caulk Wight x 1 bulb: Allium Sativum Ophioscorodon (hardneck) - From the north of Bohemia, close to Prague. Creamy appearance with slightly purplish, large cloves. Tall, erect stem and leaves over metre high.
Elephant Garlic x 3 cloves: Allium Ampeloprasum - fun member of the allium family, Elephant garlic can grow, with adequate water, to 150mm across and weigh over a kilo. For orders dispatched after 19/11/20, you will receive Elephant Garlic Solo bulbs instead of cloves.

Please note: Photo may vary from contents, the contents of this pack is listed above in the product description. It may be necessary to switch out Garlic varieties for other similar varieties throughout the season.
