Garlic 'Tasmanian Purple' (2 Heads) Organic
Bred in Tasmania, this hardneck garlic is actually adaptable to a range of climates growing successfully from Hobart to Brisbane. Grown for its nutty flavour, this is an excellent variety for cooking; however it is important to note that the flavour is stronger the further south it is grown.
Planting tips: Break the head into individual cloves and plant them pointy end up, about 7cm apart in a well-prepared bed. Cover with 2–7cm of soil (deeper in warmer climates, shallower in cooler climates) and mulch to prevent weeds competing with your bulbs. A slow-growing crop, allocate garden room for at least 6–9 months. Water when required or during periods of drought while actively growing. Harvest when tops die down. Dry and store.
