Garlic's Through


The garlic cloves planted last month are now showing some nice fat shoots. I think they must have responded well to the several days of frost we had just before Christmas. I've now managed to source some Cristo (my favourite variety) from Walkers Bulbs. I'm particularly pleased about this as I've subsequently found out that the Thermidrome pictured here isn't a good keeper. The Cristo bulbs are due to arrive here in February, so will form my late winter planting out on the allotment.

  1. I really must get around to growing some garlic, I like it, although my other half loathes it! Your crop is going to be good. x

  2. You've got until February to have a go! Threadspider's crop is looking particularly good and she's using supermarket bought stuff...
