    Of the softneck type garlics this is the best one to grow – lovely flavour and great as an ingredient

  2. Martin Wild

    The best garlic I have grown. great flavour, small number of good sized cloves. I plant 4 or 5 cloves in big pots/tubs in my greenhouse over winter with salad leaves on top like mizuna etc. then put them out mid spring.
