Our Spring Planting Garlic Bulbs Duo Pack consists of 1 pack each of Picardy Wight and Lautrec Wight.
Garlic Picardy Wight - This softneck Picardy Wight garlic bulbs originally came from the province of Picardy in northern France and so is a better choice for growing in cooler, wetter conditions than varieties sourced from further south.
Garlic Lautrec Wight - A classic hardneck variety, originally from south-west France, but grown for us on the Isle of Wight. The white-skinned, deep pink cloves have a smooth, almost creamy flavour. This variety is the one considered by many to provide the ultimate garlic experience.
Starting Spring-planting Garlic
Choose a sunny site and soil that is well drained. Incorporating bulky compost into the soil before planting will increase fertility and nutrient levels as well as improve the soil texture to make it more well-draining but at the same time adequately moisture-retentive. Garlics do not thrive in acid soils so adding lime is advisable to raise the pH and create a more alkaline soil. Plant cloves of garlic 15cm (6in) apart about 5-7cm (2-3in) deep and if planting in more than one row 30cm (12in) between rows. Plant cloves are little shallower in clay soils, but if the soil is nicely worked and well-textured plant at 5-10cm (2-4in). Water well. Consider growing under black polythene, which suppresses emerging weeds. Ridding weeds by hoeing later in the season may damage the bulb heads neat the surface of the soil.
All growing nicely. Can't wait to try them
All in great condition and growing well!
