  • Excellent taste and stores well till February at least.
  • Planting time: September to January – outside and in tunnel/glasshouse.
  • Requires cold conditions to develop.
  • Highest yields will come from Autumn plantings.
  • When the first six leaves have turned yellow, lift and dry in the sun or in an airy shed.
  • Harvesting June – August

Number of bulbs

  • 250g = 4-5 bulbs
  • 1kg = 16-20 bulbs
  • 10kg = 160-200 bulbs

(You will separate each bulb into several cloves which you plant individually)

Rust -

  • Infection is worse on nitrogen-rich soils with low potassium, so take care with fertiliser applications
  • Do not crowd plants, as this raises humidity and increases the likelihood of infection
  • Keep well weeded
  • Dispose of all plant debris at the end of cropping
  • See Herfomyc – this is effective against any fungus on herbaceous plants.  Also acts as a foliar feed so will strengthen the plant as well

Disease Prevention  (general)

Watering: Don’t water in the evening/night as this moisture will linger overnight and allow the perfect environment for fungus to creep in – water in the morning so the plants can dry out throughout the day

Soil: If you have heavy clay soils, you can do things like add sand,compost, and plant your garlic in mounds.

Tools: When dealing with any type of plant disease it’s important to sterilise your tools/materials that came into contact with it

Crop Rotation: To prevent lots of different soil diseases, rotate your vegetable families each season.
