Growing Calendar for Caulk Wight Garlic Bulbs
Delivery: Mid September to Late November
Chosen by us to give you dependable, attractive purple-striped garlic from as early as June. Proven to thrive in the UK, Caulk survives winter temperatures down to -20C° (68°F) so you can rest assured.
2 full bulbs give around 20 cloves for planting which produce 20 full bulbs in summer the following year. That works out to be around 25p for every bulb of home-grown and flavoursome garlic.
How you receive your garlic
Your garlic bulbs arrive to you in mesh bags so the individual bulbs are kept nicely together while air can get to them freely. This keeps them in the best condition they can be when they arrive to you.
Can’t plant straight away?
Garlic bulbs store really well given the right conditions. All you need to do is make sure they are kept in their mesh bags and hung up in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. A semi-heated or connected garage or a loft is perfect. Look to plant within a month.
