Buy garlic 'Marco' garlic (softneck) bulb or Allium ampeloprasum Marco: A strong flavoured variety

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: any soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This garlic is known for its strong, distinctive flavour, and fine, white skin, so it is a good option if you want your cooking full of zing. It can be stored for some months if kept cool and dry, and if planted in March the cloves should be ready for harvesting in August.

  • Garden care:
    Plant the cloves (pointy side up) 2cm deep from October to March (if frost permits) at 15cm intervals - it doesn't matter if the bulbs are shooting. 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 head (bulb) that can be split up into several cloves before planting. You will usually get about 10 cloves from this variety of garlic when split up for planting.

My garlic has turned ginger. And not in a good way.It happened just about overnight. One day I had perfectly healthy, sturdy garlic shoots: the next day the foliage was a bilious shade of orange. On closer inspection, it was covered in little raised bum
