The last planting we’d planned to overwinter was three bulbs of Solent Wight garlic. As with everything else in the garden, we’re avoiding digging for the first season, to see what comes up; this means the garlic had to be planted in containers.
The Organic Gardening Catalogue suggested 15cm between bulblets, which seemed a bit close to me, but I thought I’d give it a go. This meant I was able to squeeze quite a lot into the containers you can see: 7, 5 and four lots of 3 bulblets.
We’ll see how it manages in these slightly more cramped conditions than I’ve tried before. Even then, we’ve still got an entire bulb (a dozen or so bulblets) left over. Anyone want any garlic?
