Today has been beautiful outside, bright and dry and perfect for planting garlic. I have three different varieties to go out and hopefully they will all flourish and be ready from June onwards.
The varieties are Garlic Jolimont, Garlic Cloves Purple White and Garlic Illico, this one can be used as ‘green garlic’ from May onwards. I hope that last summers garlic with last till then but I have my doubts it is getting pretty low now and I’m regretting not plant more last year. However it’s a learning curve and I have more than doubled the amount I am planting this year, having already put in some ordinary supermarket cloves too. The comparison will be interesting, supermarket v seed merchant.
Garlic can be planted up to mid December so still time if you want to try and grow your own.
