A strong-flavoured British garlic, that is largely grown on the Isle of Wight. It has become a very popular variety which is well adapted to the British climate and produces a good crops of large bulbs with plump tasty cloves. One of the best garlics for plaiting and storing, as if kept cool and dry, the bulbs will store for months after they have been harvested. If planted early in the season, you can expect to be lifting and using the mature bulbs from July.Garden care: Plant from October to early march (if frost permits). Space the cloves 15cm apart in rows 30cm apart. Uproot as soon as the leaves start to yellow, and leave them on the surface of the soil to ripen before storing them in a light, airy position, which is dry and frost free.
