Pack of 1, commercial grade Garlic Bulbs: Garlic Solent Wight

Solent Wight is our best garlic in terms of overall eating and keeping quality. It produces hard dense bulbs that exude a presence of their own and are very long keeping – to April and beyond.

It has an elegant bouquet that retains its flavour during cooking, and the large white bulbs are easy to plait.

A November to January planting is best, but Solent Wight will crop well from end of March planting. Ready for harvesting from mid-July

Grew well in my allotment, but on the heavy clay soil was slightly smaller than expected but then again so were most other crops

this is the first year I have grown garlic that looks like the garlic you can buy in France. Last years was small but stored well, this years is big and tastes great.

First choice for garlic

This variety performed well from an autumn planting despite the terrible winter, spring and early summer conditions of 2012/13 in Norfolk. It must be extremely hardy!

This garlic works well in the north of the UK. Easy to grow and store and with a bit of melted butter on bread - full of flavour. One of my favourates!

A decent Garlic for growing in the Midlands
Monday, 27 August 2012  |  Phil

After various garlic crop failures with some of the more fancy varieties we decided to have a go with the Solent Wight Garlic, although there were still some poor bulbs we had by far our best crop using this variety. We are in Nottinghamshire so they grow well in the midland climate.
