Enjoy growing garlic Extra Early Wight in your kitchen garden for the rewarding treat of picking the full bulbs from May for supplies over the summer and into autumn. They store really well so you no longer need to pick up the bulbs at the supermarket.

Iberian Wight and tomatoes go hand in hand in the kitchen and a mozzarella salad with garlic, tomatoes, basil and cheese is a recommended recipe for this particular garlic. Slice your garlic and lightly sautee or roasted whole cloves in the oven – it’s that versatile.

How to plant:

If growing directly in a bed get the soil ready by raking the area after sprinkling some pre-planting Onion, Garlic and Shallot Feed over the area. Break into separate cloves the two bulbs you receive from us- these will be what you plant. Prod your finger or thumb into the soil to a depth of around 2.5cm (1in) and pop your cloves into each hole. Space the garlic cloves 10-12cm (4- 4 1/2in) apart. Label and date the variety so you have a record of when you planted.

Water the soil each day but cease watering from around August in the last few weeks before harvest.

You can plant these in deep containers too but be sure the container is nice and deep (30cm+) 12+in so the bulbs have space and depth to establish.

Useful tip:

We suggest you keep on top of surrounding weeds so your garlic plants develop well over spring and summer and the weeds are not robbing them of nutrients, light and water. Use a hand hoe in containers or larger hoe if growing garlic directly in the beds.
