I have managed (in between dodging rain , snow gale force winds !!) to finally plant my garlic.
These were bought from Wilko, not used them from there before so hoping they give a good crop. 3 bulbs gave me 20 cloves to plant so should keep us going for few weeks late summer onwards .
Garlic sets are choice mother bulbs with many cloves attached. Separate before planting.
Garlic bulbs will provide fresh garlic for cooking when they mature in late summer.
Can be planted in most soils that are free draining and are quite happy grown in containers as well.
Matures in late summer.
Plant January-March; harvest June-August. Allow 10cm (4″) between cloves and space rows 15–20cm (6–8″) apart.
