Description

Adapted to cooler and wetter conditions, Picardy Wight garlic will grow anywhere in the UK that has proved a challenge to other garlic. In northern France it is plaited and smoked due to its longevity and superior, strong flavour. Beautiful with its distinct pinkish hue, Picardy Wight is an excellent braiding garlic and will store well long past April if kept cool and dry.

Can be planted in the autumn but better planted in the spring.
