Now an essential part of so many kitchen gardens, with excellent health benefits (lowering blood pressure, fat and cholesterol levels and combating infections). And they couldn't be easier to grow - simply plant the garlic cloves in autumn, and they'll be ready to lift and dry next July! Garlic Lovers' Collection contains 8 bulbs (2 bulbs of Printanor, Germidour, Messidrome and Red Duke):
Printanor (French grown - softneck)- A reasonable new vareity with large bulbs filled with plump tasty cloves. Can be planted in the autumn and in the spring. 1 x 2 bulb pack (10-12 cloves per bulb).
Germidour (French grown - softneck) - Violet-streaked skin with white cloves and a mild flavour, easily stored and split for cooking. Plant October-January. Plant October-January. 1 x 2 bulb pack (1-11 cloves per bulb).
Messidrome (French grown - softneck) - White with excellent flavour for all culinary uses. Plant October-January. 1 x 2 bulb packs (10-11 cloves per bulb).
Red Duke (Hardneck) - The last stronghold of rare exotic hardnecks with fierce and spicy flavours is in Eastern Europe. Hotter and stronger than any of the commonly planted garlic in the UK, these bulbs still have the attributes of their mother bulbs which came from Central Asia, perhaps 800 years ago with the Mongol invasions. Bright white skins with plump purple cloves. 1 x 2 bulb pack (8-10 cloves per bulb).
