  • Garden care: Plant the cloves (pointy side up) 2cm deep from October to November (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.

  • Pets: TOXIC if eaten; Humans: Skin irritant/allergen
