Gardening — Monty Don

This week’s job


‘Hardneck’ varieties of garlic have a stiff stalk and should be planted now, a month before softneck varieties. Plant plump cloves 15cm apart, pointed end up and a good 2.5cm below the surface, in well-drained soil in a very sunny position. Shoots will appear in 6-8 weeks.
