Carcassonne Wight Seed (2 or 4 Bulbs)

Allium Sativum var. ophioscorodon (Hardneck) - Exceptional, pink cloved hardneck garlic showing great vigour in UK climate. Most successful of all hardnecks in UK with good skin cover, great strength of flavour coupled with a superior (in our opinion) bouquet and character. This variety was probably brought to Carcassonne by pilgrims travelling
from the east on their way to Compostela.

  • Growers Tips

The basics: Plant your garlic in an area which will receive maximum sunlight hours. Place the cloves 3 – 4cm below the surface, root down (pointy end up) 6 inches apart. Water your garlic during dry periods, stopping watering completely during the last few weeks. Harvest when the lower leaves start to yellow and fold. Mid May – mid August depending on variety and location.
