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 at a depth of 2cm (1") below the surface of the soil and 10cm (4") apart, leaving 45cm (18") between each row.
Weed rows of garlic regularly and protect crops from birds by covering them with netting. Garlic is undemanding and will only require watering during particularly dry periods. Harvest garlic from June, 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.

  1. Garlic : Albigensian Wight

    By Sheila Chapman 03-10-2010

    Easy to grow and produced large, fabulous bulbs. Easily the best in our allotment show and we won first prize. Much admired by other allotment holders and visitors. We are storing it in the fridge and using it in vast quantities. It goes in curries, chillies and we roast it to use with other roasted veg. from the allotment for lunch with garlic bread and also with roast chicken etc. in the evening.
