Originally from Northern Spain, Rose Isle of Wight garlic. Bulbs are a lovely rosy colour with white outer skin. Best sown in autumn from September to December, with harvesting June/July. Expected bulb size 5-6cms, with uniformly sized cloves.

How to grow

Plant garlic in full sunlight. Put the cloves into the soil root base down so the tip is still showing at ground level. Create the hole for the clove as pushing into the soil can damage the root base. Place about 15cms apart. Keep watered in dry weather and until about 3 weeks before harvest when you can start to let them dry out naturally.

Problem solving

Prefers full sun and keep well watered, they do well in a fertile soil.
