In this range you'll find spring-planting, autumn-planting and heat-treated varieties. Spring-planting varieties will give you a crop during June and July and autumn-planting varieties will be ready a few weeks earlier. Spring is such a busy time and planting onions and garlic in the autumn to overwinter gives you one less job to in spring! Heat-treated onions are less likely to bolt (run to seed) on planting, which occurs particularly in red varieties.
Elephant Garlic (Autumn Planting)
Allium ampeloprasum, Great-Headed Garlic
Autumn planting. Hardneck.
Elephant Garlic is not a true garlic but a stem leek, which produces massive bulbs approximately 10cm (4”) in diameter. The cloves are also much larger than conventional garlic with a milder taste, making it suitable for a wide choice of culinary uses, especially roasting. Available for Spring or Autumn planting. Height: 90cm (36”). Spread: 20cm (8”).
