180 grams/ approximately 40 cloves
A hardneck variety garlic.
An excellent versatile vegetable, perfect for flavouring many types of dishes. Can be used raw or cooked.
Plant in Autumn, harvest in late very late Spring/Summer
Separate cloves and plant individually approximately 15 cm apart, pointy end up to produce an abundant crop (rows 60cm apart).
