Taylors Garlic Early Purple Wight - 1 Bulb

Taylors Garlic Early Purple Wight – 1 Bulb was £2.99 now £2.29
As it name suggests Taylors Garlic Early Purple Wight produces one of the earliest garlic harvests of the season. It is a lovely creamy tasting garlic that features purple-streaked bulbs and does not keep as well as some other varieties so is best used fresh for that first taste of summer. It is quick to dry and often consumed green. It can be panted from October until January but we recommend putting it in as early as possible for the best harvest.Type: Hardy BulbHavest Period: May-JunGarlic is planted from bulb segments (cloves) so break up the bulb carefully into individual segments prior to planting. Make sure that the cloves are planted the right way up: the flatter basal plate should be facing downwards. Allow 15cm between individual cloves and 30cm between rows. Plant the cloves so the tips are 2.5cm below soil surface. Choose an open sunny site and well-drained soil. High humidity around the foliage and wet soils make the crop more prone to disease particularly if planted in the autumn. Garlic does not thrive on acid soils. Reduce acidity by applying lime in autumn and winter and improve the soil
