This super saver Spring Garlic Bulb Collection consists of 3 packs of the best spring planting garlic varieties giving you a crop in July and August, and a saving of £3!
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.
Mersley Wight 2 bulbs (softneck) - Mersley Farm in the Isle of Wight is the 'home of garlic' and this is the first variety that carries its name! Though originating from the Auvergne region in central France across to the volcanic drome in northern Provence, Mersley Wight has proved to be a great variety for the UK gardener with larger cloves and an outstanding vigour, better than many other softnecks. Originally selected from stock that includes the original Solent Wight, think Solent Wight but bigger!
Elephant Garlic - 6 cloves - 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.
These varieties are perfect for spring planting – tried and tested, we know that they perform well. We choose only the finest quality bulbs. Each year we work with our friends at the Garlic Farm, one of the world’s leading garlic farms, and all of our garlic is sourced from them ensuring we always supply superior top quality garlic from expert growers.
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.
