Elephant Garlic cloves produces big bulbs and big fat cloves. Closely related to the leek technically you grow it just like you would any regular garlic.
Excellent for overwintering we recommend that you add it to your winter plot so your plants have time to settle and establish for superior harvests next summer.
Treat your soil to an inch (2.5cm) top layer of fresh vegetable compost and plant the big bulbs eight to nine inches (20-23cm) apart around an inch (2.5cm) deep into the soil.
The flavour is sweeter and milder than traditional garlic, for those that like a hint of garlic flavour.
Basted with olive oil and then roasted in the oven, Elephant Garlic cloves make a rare and creamy-textured vegetable great to serve as starters. Also great to enhance soups without overpowering them.
