Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Although Garlic 'Carcassonne Wight' originates in the South of France, it is possibly the best hardneck garlic for overwintering in the UK. Vigorous plants produce pink cloves which are similar to Lautrec, but thought by some to have a superior bouquet and character. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 15cm (6").

JUL
Flowering Months Harvest Months
Weed rows of garlic regularly. Garlic is undemanding and will only require watering during particularly dry periods. 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 condition for up to 3 months.
Plant garlic in rows in any well drained soil in full sun. It is important that the soil does not become waterlogged so incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve drainage and feed the soil. On particularly heavy soils, grow garlic in raised beds. Carefully split the bulb into individual cloves. Plant each clove with the pointed end facing upwards at a depth of 2cm (1") below the surface of the soil. Garlic cloves should be spaced 10cm (4") apart, leaving 45cm (18") between each row.
