This collection contains 3 of our best selling, best performing spring planting alliums which will give bumper yields in Summer. The collection consists of 1 pack each of:
Garlic Picardy Wight (softneck) 2 bulbs - Originating in the fields of Picardy and the surrounding area, we’ve found this variety copes really well with cooler and wetter conditions and, will grow in all areas of the UK. Plump and juicy cloves full of flavour.
Onion Stuttgarter Giant 250g (approx 80 sets) - Well known and reliable, Stuttgarter Giant gives an excellent crop of flat onions which store very well.
Shallot Bistro 500g - Perfect raw in salads, pickled or added to a host of casseroles or other hot dishes, Bistro gives an excellent crop of fairly mild, rich golden bulbs. It can be planted from February onwards.
Unfortunately, due to an overwhelming demand, we are unable to supply Shallot Bistro from any orders placed after 18th March. We know how important gardening is, especially at this time of the planting year, so we will therefore automatically substitute with a similar variety called Golden Gourmet.
Golden Gourmet is an established variety that we have sold for many years now and is therefore tried and tested and loved by our customers. It has good yields of high quality, golden round bulbs.
These varieties are perfect for spring planting- we have tried and tested them and 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.
