Not a true member of the garlic family but closer to a leek, these bulbs have a fresh, mild and sweet flavour. Each bulb is approximately 10-15cm across. Elephant garlic is best planted in the autumn for maximum size.
Kingsland Wight (hardneck)
Bright white skins with fierce and spicy flavours which are the signatures of this hardneck from Czech Republic with plump purple cloves. One of the very hot and strong varieties commonly planted in the UK. Autumn planting.
Picardy Wight (softneck)
A strong flavoured garlic that has a distinct “pink” hue in appearance.
Carcassone Wight (hardneck)
Carcassonne Wight is an exceptional, pink cloved hardneck variety showing great vigour in the UK climate. Good skin cover, great strength and carry through coupled with superior (in our opinion!) bouquet and character.
Mersley Wight (softneck)
A Classic "Silverskin" type, ideal for late winter or spring planting. One of the best for keeping qualities, it can be stored up to June the following year.
Mersley Wight has outstanding vigour and is larger and bolder than similar types. Ideal garlic for the UK gardener. Ready for harvest end of July.
Solent Wight (softneck)
Described as having an aroma and bouquet without compare, this garlic produces approximately 15 cloves per bulb. 'Solent Wight' is the longest keeping garlic and if harvested in July or August and dried, it can keep until April the following year!
Please note: Some varieties on this collection may be changed to a similar variety, if necessary.

Softneck versus Hardneck
There are two distinctive types of cultivated garlic. Softneck is easier to grow, has plenty of cloves and stores well. Hardneck produces fewer but larger cloves and because they have a thinner skin they have a shorter shelf life. It also produces flower stalks as part of its natural growth.
