This super saver Collection consists of 3 packs, 1 each of the following varieties:
Garlic Caulk Wight 2 bulbs (hardneck)- Our tastiest and spiciest garlic yet! Originating from Eastern Europe, this purple skinned hardneck type was selected due to its large and plump cloves, which are easy to peel, and its strong and vigorous habit. It grows particularly well in our relatively soft UK climate, having been trialled successfully in the north and south, but can withstand temperatures down to -20°C.
Early Purple Wight 2 bulbs (softneck) -We are pleased to welcome this garlic back. These large purple bulbs are possibly the first of the season, ready from mid May to early June. The large purple bulbs dry quickly and should be used as soon as harvested - certainly within 3 months.
Garlic Solent Wight 2 bulbs (softneck) -The best keeping garlic we know, the bulbs can last as long as the following March after lifting them in July. This superb, softneck strain yields large, high quality bulbs with a fragrance which is both long and strong.
Autumn, especially October and into early November, is the ideal time for planting garlic as the soil still has some warmth and the days are long and light enough to allow plenty of root growth to develop.
Our garlic is grown by one of the world’s leading garlic farms on the Isle of Wight. It is hand graded prior to being packed and despatched and will be ready for immediate planting. A full and complete growing guide will be included to help you get the best results.
