    As others have said, feed with chicken pellets, liquid seaweed, compost tea, FYM etc. We're always trying different varieties but some of the best have been from self saved bulbs that are now going into their fourth generation (the idea is they'll aclimatise to local conditions but it'll be interesting to see if Monty's theory comes into play).
    Ours are planted mid to late October, there's a couple of photos here on an earlier thread

    I think planting time is the key for success with garlic. Autumn planting gives them more time to establish so they can make full use of the growing season.

    I agree. Also Tedís mum I adore your profile picture. Lurcher I assume? What kind of cross is he?

    I was once told that you feed Aliums the same way you feed brassicas. AP will probably be able to confirm or deny this

    Lurcher , yes, we aren't sure what mix as he came to us from a rescue centre, he's very tall though, probably some deer hound in there somewhere!

    Might well be with that face. Saluki too maybe based on the markings. We have a lurcher - 3/4 deerhound 1/4 bearded collie. Our last dog was a rescue lurcher so we never knew what she was but probably deerhound, greyhound and saluki.
