Iberian Wight Garlic is a Spanish softneck variety that produces a big bulb and has quite a powerful taste when cured (dried), this makes it perfect for cooking with. It grows well in the bad weather and is more resistant to the rain than other varieties. Iberian is also good eaten as a green garlic.

Plant October-January, harvest late June, keeps till January. Plant deep as it has a tendency to push itself up and grow on top of the ground, though we haven’t had any problem with this.

You can buy Iberian Garlic in sets of two, four & six bulbs or in 1 Kilo bags (13 bulbs). Please select the required amount using the 'No of Bulbs' Tab above the 'Add To Cart' Button.

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

Prepare
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 for getting waterlogged.

Plant
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.

Care
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.

Harvest
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 waited longer than I should have to plant my Iberian Garlic but, when I did, shoots started to appear after just 8 days which is really impressive for the October climate here in Ireland. I live in an urban area so had to plant them in a container but I am looking forward to my first homegrown garlic next summer. Delivery was rapid as it always is with Quickcrop. Good value too.

This is a great garlic to grow and is highly versatile to the elements. If your feeling impatient you can harvest it a few weeks early and they can be eaten as green garlic where they appear similar to spring onions. It really is a tasty little fellow and I'd recommend trying both the green garlic and then waiting for it to fully mature. I didn't even know they stocked this variety in Ireland so I can't wait to give it a grow this autumn. I'll definitely be buying a good batch of seeds!

Another locally sourced product from Spain. I really expect them to give some superb garlic. The cloves look good and are now in the ground (Oct 2017) Should be harvesting in June in this part of the world (Almeria, Spain)
