Growing Instructions:

Garlic Caulk Wight thrives in well-drained soil with full sun exposure. Plant the cloves 20-40mm deep, 12 to 15cm apart, in rows 30 to 45cm apart, with the root down and pointed end up. Ensure the soil is kept moist but not waterlogged. This variety can withstand temperatures down to -20°C, making it ideal for the UK climate. Harvest in June to July when the bulbs are fully mature and the leaves start to yellow. Carefully dig under the plants with a fork or spade, lift the garlic, and dry in the open sun, on a verandah, or in a glasshouse. The outer leaves will slip away to reveal beautiful marbled purple stripe bulbs.

  • Vigorous Growth: Produces large, firm bulbs with a distinctive dark green, wide leaf pattern.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Beautiful marbled purple stripe bulbs, adding visual interest to your garden.
