This super saver collection consists of 2 bulbs each of Garlic Solent Wight and Carcassonne Wight and 10 cloves of Elephant Garlic:
Garlic Solent Wight (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.
Garlic Carcassonne Wight (Hardneck) - Perfectly suited to UK conditions, it grows wight great vigour to yield exceptional pink cloves and a good skin cover. Splendidly fragrant cloves and a flavour that carries through well into cooking. Expect 50-70mm bulbs in July.
Elephant Garlic - Closer to leeks than to true garlic, you will produce large bulbs up to 10cm/4in across with jumbo-sized cloves. It has a mild, almost sweet flavour which can be appreciated if cloves are chopped into salads or roasted whole and served as a special vegetable.
We choose only the finest quality bulbs, grown commercially in the UK by one of the world’s leading garlic farms. You should always buy garlic from a reputable source and never plant shop bought, cooking garlic.
All of our bulbs are certified as disease and virus free.
