    Originating from the town of Lautrec in south western France, this is a classic hardneck garlic. It produces handsome, white-skinned bulbs of smooth flavoured, deep pinky-purple cloves, which are ideal for livening up many of your favourite dishes. It is widely regarded by the French to be one of the best varieties.

  • Garden care:
    Plant the cloves (pointy side up) 2cm deep from October to March (if frost permits) at 15cm intervals. Subsequent rows should be spaced at 30cm intervals. Gently lift when the leaves start to yellow, and leave them on the surface of the soil (or in a bright shed) to ripen before storing them in a light, airy position, which is dry and frost free.

Please note this is one bulb that can be split up into several clovesbefore planting. You will usually get about 4 cloves per bulb.

  • Q:

    How do I get rid of gnats?

    We are having a wedding in our garden and need to eliminate gnats. We have a small pond, which doesn't help but we really don't want to get rid of it. There will not be room to have citronella flares. Is there anything we can plant? Thank you

      Hello there, One of the nicest things to plant that will help to discourage gnats and flying menaces is lemon verbena or Lippia Citriodora. This is a wonderful plant with pretty white flowers in summer but the real attraction is its lemon scented leaves which discourage flies. It is a slightly tender plant though that needs some shelter over winter. Other plants include garlic or garlic chives, Chamomile, Artemesia, Pyrethrum and Feverfew. I hope this gives you a few ideas. Helen Plant Doctor
