Garlic 'Garcua' (Spring/Autumn Planting)

Allium sativum

Hardy Bulb

Give Garlic Garcua a little extra room to accommodate a slightly spreading leaf formation and this vigorous, hardy soft neck garlic will reward you with large, globe-shaped bulbs and large oval cloves - one goes a long way in your dishes. Under optimum conditions, from an autumn planting expect to harvest 16-18 bulbs (up to 1.75kgs) through July. The firm white bulbs of Garlic Garcua store well through to the following spring. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 15cm (6")

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, plant 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.
