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. This is the earliest Heritage hardneck to harvest and will keep well until February.

Tuscany Wight x 1 bulb: Allium sativum (Softneck) - Originating in the rolling, fertile Tuscan countryside, this large white garlic is a late type like Venetian & Solent Wight.

Provence Wight x 2 bulb: Allium sativum (Softneck) - A large white softneck garlic with purple streaks that can produce bulbs that approach Elephant Garlic size.

Iberian Wight x 1 bulb: Allium Sativum (Softneck) – Large fat white garlic with purple stripes, origin in south west Spain. Purple when grown close to surface. Excellent all round garlic with large cloves.

Picardy Wight x 1 bulb: Allium Sativum (Softneck) - Adapted to cooler and wetter conditions, will grow anywhere in the UK that has proved a challenge to other garlic.

  • 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.
