Position: full sun Soil: any soil Rate of growth: average Hardiness: fully hardy Elephant garlic is a great addition to any herbaceous border or vegetable bed. Each bulb is approximately 5-6 inches across and a single clove of elephant garlic can be as large as a whole bulb of ordinary garlic. Closely related to the leek the elephant garlic has a much milder flavour, much sweeter than ordinary garlic. Garden care: Plant the cloves (pointy side up) 2cm deep from September to December (if frost permits) at 30cm intervals. Subsequent rows should be spaced at 60cm intervals. Gently lift when the leaves start to yellow, and leave them on the surface of the soil (or in a bright shed) to ripen before storing them in a light, airy position, which is dry and frost free.
