The 5 Best Seed Garlic Varieties To Grow

Our new garlic seeds and onion pack contains 5 of our favourite Autumn planted garlic varieties. Garlic is perfect for planting in the Autumn as it needs a period of cold for each seed clove to divide and form the new cloves that make up your garlic bulb. Garlic is one of the most exciting vegetables to grow where you pop one little clove into the ground only to dig up a bulb containing 12-14 cloves in 6 months. Don't forget you only need to buy garlic once every few years as you can re plant some of your summer harvest the following Autumn for a new seasons crop.

Our garlic pack includes 1 bulb each of Provence, Mersley, Lautrec, Messidor, Iberian

Here's a step by step guide to grow the best garlic:

Prepare your soil well. Mix in plenty of good compost or Envirogrind to raise the fertility of the soil. Many gardeners will tell you to space your cloves at six inches between plants but if you like bigger bulbs you can increase the spacing to 20cm. Make sure you plant in the sunniest part of the garden as garlic need full sun to thrive. Only but bulbs from a good source as ordinary shop bought varieties may not be suitable or carry disease which can be introduced to your garden. If you have a wet site with heavy clay soil grow your garlic in raised beds to keep them from getting waterlogged.

Break up the bulbs into individual cloves when you plant them and be careful not to damage or bruise them. Place the cloves in the soil 3-4 cm below the surface with the pointy end facing up. Only plant the best cloves and discard and damaged, thin or small ones. Remember that garlic needs a period of cold, at least below 10 degrees for a period of 6 weeks for the bulb to split into individual cloves. This is why garlic needs to be planted in the Autumn or very early Spring.

You will need to give your garlic a little care during the growing season. If the year is dry (shouldn't be a problem!) make sure you water them through dry periods. You however should stop watering in the weeks coming up to harvest. Carefully remove any weeds as they appear but be careful as garlic has a shallow root system which is easily damaged. We recommend adding sulphate of potash to your garlic in February which will give the plant everything it needs to grow big, tasty bulbs.

You will know when your garlic is ready to harvest when the leaves turn yellow-brown. You are better to harvest before the stalks fall over (unlike onions) as the bulb will open and will be prone to rot in storage. Dig your garlic carefully and remove any loose soil, if the weather is warm and sunny leave on the ground to dry otherwise bring indoors to an open airy place. Don't remove the garlic stalks or foliage as you'll need these to plait the garlic and to keep it fresh while drying. The longer the tops stay on the garlic the longer it will stay fresh.

I purchased garlic this week in order to keep it until September - was this a mistake or will it still be okay by September? I got the 5 varieties and they are still in the very thorough packaging that they came in

Hi Sarah I am afraid they won't keep that long. You would be best to plant them out now Niall Quickcrop

Hi, if planting garlic in raised beds inside a polytunnel, would the temperature get low enough to form bulbs properly? Thanks
Answered by Niall
on September 05th, 2020
Hi Daniel Yes it will as soil temperatures in tunnels are only about 3 degrees higher than outside over winter. However you would be best to wait a little later (early November) before planting as it takes longer for the soil temps to drop in the tunnel Niall Quickcrop

I ordered this pack and only received 2 of the listed varieties in the deal. I didn't receive the 2 elephant garlic and province which was disappointing considering the main reason for ordering was to try elephant. Replacements were iberian and lautrec.

Hi Chris. Apologies for that. This was a picking error and i have asked the warehouse to send out the missing items. Please hold on to the Iberian and Lautrec varieties. They are both really good.
Asked By Jane Forrester

About how many cloves (average) are there to a bulb? I want to harvest at least 52 bulbs of garlic next summer, and I don't know how many bulbs to order.
Answered by Andrew
on September 26th, 2016
Most varieties have 10/12 cloves in each bulb but it can vary from 8 to 14 depending on the variety. That said you are better to only use the larger cloves in the Bulb as these will give larger bulbs.
Asked By Sharon cumisjey

Is it too late to plant garlic now?
Answered by Andrew
on January 21st, 2015
Hi Sharon No, it isn't too late to plant garlic now. You can plant garlic from September till early March with earlier planting giving larger cloves. They need a period of cold weather to cause the clove you plant to divide and grow a bulb of individual cloves so get them in asap. I hope this helps. Andrew
