It is easy for any gardener to grow good garlic. It grows well over most of the UK provided it is grown in a free draining soil, that is not too acid (pH levels should be over 6.7) and kept well watered and weed free.

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 have a shorter shelf life. It also produces flower stalks as part of its natural growth.
