Expect big and bulbous garlics in May of Iberian Wight; an excellent soft-neck variety happy fried, roasted or sautéed in the kitchen and perfect for storing in a cool position for supplies over the summer and into autumn. Just plait them up and hang from a hook in the shed.

We recommend you partner your Iberian Wight garlic with sliced home-grown salad tomatoes or roast the cloves whole with cherry tomatoes for a colourful barbecue side dish at the right time of year.

How to plant:

If growing directly in a bed prepare the soil by raking the area after sprinkling some pre-planting Onion, Garlic and Shallot Feed over the area. Break up the two bulbs into separate cloves. Prod your finger or thumb into the soil to a depth of around an inch and place your cloves in each hole. Space the garlic cloves 10-12cm (4- 4 1/2in) apart. Label and date the variety so you have a record of when you planted.

You can plant these in deep containers too but be sure the container is nice and deep (30cm+) 12+in so the bulbs have space and depth to establish.

Water the soil each day but cease watering from around August in the last few weeks before harvest.

Useful tip:

We suggest you keep on top of surrounding weeds so your garlic plants develop well over spring and summer and the weeds are not robbing them of nutrients, light and water. Use a hand hoe in containers or larger hoe if growing garlic directly in the beds.
