More Details

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.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Best planted out September – February. Plant each giant clove upright, with the flat base down and pushed into the soil to twice their own depth, spaced at intervals of 12in/30cm.
Care Tips Planted in a herbaceous border, this tall and elegant plant adds glamour and interest. They need very little after care. Just nip off the flower bud if one appears and keep the area weed-free.

Harvesting June. Harvest before the bulb begins to split.
Cooking Notes This is delicious roasted or in stir-fries. It has a slightly milder flavour, that works well in oriental dishes.
