Why We Love It

An ideal addition to your roasting in, Elephant Garlic yields extremely large, yet mild and delicious bulbs.

More closely related to leeks than garlic, Elephant Garlic can planted at anytime from October up to February, ready for harvest the following late spring

Planting and Care

Plant these in full sun in any type of well-drained, fertile soil with a neutral or alkaline pH level. Water during dry periods.

Into the Ground

  1. Use a fork to loosen the soil in your chosen location.
  2. Mix in some organic compost.
  3. Dig some holes twice the size of the rootballs so the bulbs are 15 cm apart in rows 30 cm apart.
  4. Place the bulbs with the pointed side facing upwards and backfill the holes.
  5. Water well.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a container that's large enough to plant your cloves 15 cm apart in rows 30 cm apart. Add plenty of grit for drainage.
  2. Fill it with soil and make holes twice the size of the rootballs.
  3. Pop your bulbs in the holes so that the pointed tip is facing upwards.
  4. Gently firm the soil and water generously.
