Garlic ~ Germidour (September)

A well-known and reliable very early variety. It comes from French production but is well suited to UK growing conditions. This softneck* garlic has a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit and produces purple bulbs with a mild yet rich flavour.


Price: 2.00

Garlic ~ Therador (September)

White bulbs with beige cloves. Very resistant variety with excellent taste. Short dormancy variety which MUST be planted by the end of December.


Price: 2.00

Garlic ~ Messidrome (September)

French white-skinned softneck* variety with beige cloves for autumn planting.


Price: 2.00

* Most commercially grown garlic is of the softneck type. This means that it does not produce a flowering stalk. Softnecks tend to have more, but smaller, cloves and a longer shelf-life than the hardnecks.

Harvest garlic from July, when the leaves begin to turn yellow, by loosening them from the ground with a trowel. Gently wash and dry garlic bulbs, then place them in a warm dry position to dry out, prior to storing them. Bulbs can then be stored in good conditions for up to 3 months.

Plant : from September to December
Harvesting : from July
