Get this duo pack of top autumn-planting garlic varieties. You receive around 20 planting cloves of hardneck variety Extra Early Wight in two garlic bulbs. Simply separate cloves on planting. In addition, you receive around 20 cloves of softneck variety Early Purple Wight.

In your duo pack you receive:

Garlic Extra Early Wight (20 planting cloves): Pure white garlic bulbs, smoky in flavour when fried.

Garlic Early Purple Wight (20 planting cloves): Attractive white and purple-blush bulbs at harvest time.

Softneck garlics are milder and keep for longer on storage after harvesting. Hardneck garlics are better for using straight away. They have a central bulb stem which you can remove and sauté like asparagus.

This duo is ideal if you like to plant your garlic in autumn to overwinter. This is advisable if you have good, workable soil that drains freely. Add pre-planting garlic fertiliser to the soil to give the planting cloves an initial boost.
