Onions and Garlic

by on September 27, 2015

Garlic bulbsThe garlic sets have arrived. The three varieties ordered are all soft neck varieties – they store better than the hard neck garlic.

  1. Thermidrome is an early variety,  very high yielding with a medium flavour,
  2. Germidour is a violet-streaked skin with white cloves and a mild flavour, easily stored and split for cooking
  3. and Cristo is very strong flavoured garlic.

The Senshyu Yellow Onion Sets have also arrived. These are the autumn planting onion sets – a job for the next few weeks then as well as planting the garlic. They are a hardy Japanese variety which do a lot of their growing over the winter months and allow us to have our main crop that bit earlier than spring planted onion sets.
