Autumn is the time of year to plant garlic bulbs.
Each bulb splits easily in to cloves, each clove can grow in to a new plant.
Potted up in soil-based compost, the cloves should be planted pointy end up and pushed an inch down into the soil.
Garlic is ideal for growing in containers, so we have potted some up ready to be taken home by green-fingered cooks from our Harvest Festival and BBQ on Wednesday 26th October.
We have also planted some Garlic ‘Marco’ and huge bulbs of Elephant Garlic for the garden.
And covered the delicious bulbs with, what we hope is, squirrel-proof wire….
