Regeneratively Grown Elephant Seed Garlic Cloves 100g - South West Grown

If you’ve never tried local organic garlic before, we highly recommend trying these  Elephant garlic bulbs grown on Galloway Springs Farm near Bridgetown, South of Perth.  This white-skinned garlic produces huge cloves and the heads are double the size of regular garlic while also producing incredible flavours. 

Elephant garlic is not a true garlic, it’s actually a hybrid of a leek and a garlic. Originating out of the Russian region where it is used as a vegetable to add a mild garlic flavour to stews – it has become both an ornamental plant and a valued, long storing, large cloved bulb loved by many.

It Italy it is known as the “kissing garlic” in a way to differentiate its milder flavour from its more aggressive commercial garlic cousin!

Unlike regular garlic, elephant garlic is a perennial plant that can remain in your growing areas year after year. It can be a great addition to wildlife gardens, perennial beds or polycultures, and can be grown in a wide range of different climates and conditions. 

Galloway Springs Farm practises Regenerative Agriculture and is pesticide free.

How to Grow Great Garlic

Plant garlic cloves between the end of March to the end of May in the south west of WA. Plant in March to early April in warmer climates. In cooler parts of Australia, spring is preferable.

Choose the largest cloves for planting - big cloves means big heads.

Prepare the ground with lime, compost and pelletised chicken manure, making sure that it is well worked-through the ground and weeds removed.

Plant the cloves 8 - 10 cm apart and 4 cm deep with the pointy bit upwards.

Water the plantings in well and keep the plants regularly watered, not letting them dry out through the growing season.

Keep the plants free of weeds, especially during the early part of the growing season.

How to Harvest Garlic

Harvest when the plants are dry and half the leaves have browned off and died. This will happen from the base of the plants. It is not essential to remove the flower stalks.

Knock most of the soil off the mature garlic and either hang or place on racks to dry for three weeks minimum before cutting off the stalks and roots and storing in a cool, dry place with ample air flow to prevent post-harvest rot.

You can begin to eat your garlic as soon as the bulbs begin to swell, stems and all, like for leeks, or when you first harvest and the skins are still soft. You do not have to wait for them to dry.

Correctly dried, your garlic will last until the end of May when they begin to sprout their green shoots.

It has emerged.

The elephant garlic has been in the ground about a month or so now. It took a few weeks to emerge but now it is going gang busters. I’m looking forward to being able to taste the harvest.

Yay! That's great news! Thank you for sharing Christopher! We hope that you enjoy your harvest! :-)
