Garlic is a member of the ‘onion family’ (known as alliums), which include onions, leeks, chives, spring onions and shallots. Garlic is a bulb that is made up of a number of segments called cloves. Garlic is best planted between November and April although you will generally get a bigger and better crop if you plant it in the autumn.

Varieties

  • ‘Solent White’ AGM: Very attractive bulbs that are well adapted to the British climate. The bulbs store well into the following spring.
  • ‘Purple Wight’: An early garlic with purple-streaked bulbs. It is best used fresh as it doesn’t store well.
  • ‘Arno’ AGM: An attractive garlic with ivory-white skin covering pink cloves. Stores well.
  • ‘Spanish Roja’: An old cultivar with a strong flavor. The cloves are easy to peel and store well.
