Garlic bulbs available at our Autumn Gathering

garlic bulbOur Autumn planting vegetables this year will include seven different varieties of French garlic, which is certified to be 99% virus free and fungus free. Pick up yours at our Autumn Gathering event on 15th October 2016.

Garlic needs a month or more in the ground at a temperature of 10C or less, and Autumn planting gives you the best chance for this.

So you can get planting yours soon – all you need to do is decide what sort to grow.

To help you choose, here are some notes from our supplier (Jennifer Birch)…

Arno

  • Winner of RHS Award of Gardening Merit 2004.
  • A good keeper – will store until the Spring following harvesting.
  • Produces the largest bulbs of any long dormancy type.
  • Plant between November and March for harvest late July or August.
  • A white head with pink cloves.
  • High multiplication ratio.

Aulixito

  • A very early cropper.
  • Plant in October for harvest in June.
  • White head and white clove skins.
  • A garlic with stiff stems which will naturally flower.
  • Should keep until the December following harvesting.

Cristo

  • A white garlic head with pale red cloves.
  • Consistent cropper, good size for a long dormancy type.
  • Plant before or after Christmas for harvest in July or August.
  • Winner of RHS Award of Gardening Merit 2004.

Dario

  • A newly developed variety, popular with French growers.
  • Plant in October or November for harvest in July.
  • A non-flowering variety which can be strung or plaited.

Germidour

  • Winner of RHS Award of Gardening Merit 2004.
  • Plant in October or November for harvest in June.
  • A rich purple head with ivory clove skins – very attractive.
  • A non-flowering variety which can be strung or plaited.
  • Lift as soon as mature. Should keep until December following harvesting.

Sultop

  • White head garlic with attractive red clove skins.
  • Plant before or after Christmas for a July or August harvest.

You can pick up your garlic bulbs at our Autumn Gathering event on Saturday 15th October, 10am to 1pm at Newsome Scout Hall. We ask for £2 per whole bulb to cover our costs. This is ideal if you have a small garden or plot, as you don’t need to buy a whole pack. It’s also great if you fancy planting more than one variety and you just want one bulb of each – or if you want lots, but want to save some pennies (and avoid paying for postage).

Look out for onions, shallots, broad bean seeds and some fruit and veg plants too – all suitable for Autumn planting. We also have some good quality enviromesh, in case you need to cover any of your crops over.

If you can’t make it to our Autumn event, we will offer any remaining stock afterwards. You can Join our email list for updates.

The nights might well be drawing in, but there’s still lots to get growing.
