Description

Elephant garlic has a mild taste and huge succulent cloves, which are perfect for roasting and eating raw, grated into a salad. If you garden on heavy soil like mine, this is the garlic to grow.

This produces a beautiful purple flowering head – which should be snipped when it emerges to get the best bulb for eating.

  • Comes with full planting and growing instructions

Care Tips

Water the plants in the morning so the soil dries by nightfall to discourage diseases. Stop watering when the garlic's leaves start drying out, which is an indication it's harvest time
