PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).
|Although crow garlic is often considered a weed (the bulbils produced at the tip of the stems fall to the ground and can cause it to spread rather too eagerly!), if you don't have space to grow proper garlic but would like to add a hint of fresh garlic to meals, you might consider growing some plants in a container near the back door. The leaves can be chopped, much as you would chives. I understand that in large quantities they could be slightly toxic, but not much is needed.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Very easy... just gently rake into the surface of compost in a container and let nature take its course. All parts of the plant can be used. It is not advisable to let it escape into your flower beds, so remove the bulbils when they are mature but before they drop to the ground.|
