Friday 26th Nov
We planted 3 rows of garlic (French, purple Germinador), split the head into cloves and planted 1″ deep 4″ apart – garlic is a hungry crop and needs fertile soil. Also, an extensive wild snap to make to head divide into cloves.
NB: never use garlic from the supermarket, it would introduce viruses into your soil and will be imported from China so won’t be suitable for our climate.
We also finished off clearing the bed full of strawberries and have lots of spare plants going for free – just call into the studio and ask or they will be composted!
