Our garlic is sent out in autumn. It should be planted in time for the roots to develop before the really cold weather. It then needs at least a month with the soil temperature below 10ºC. Cultural details are sent with the garlic.
Long Dormancy garlic will store from lifting until the following spring. Short Dormancy will only store for about four months. Sprint is ready several weeks before the others.
Arno and Christo are soft-necked. Harvested heads can be strung or plaited. Aulxito, Sprint and Sultop will naturally flower and develop stiff stems which should be cut at 4-5" (10-12cm)
