Last autumn I tried garlic for the first time for over a decade. My previous attempt produced such pathetic results. What little that grew was small and subject to white rot. So this time I put in a generous handful of sand into each planting hole. There were three varieties in one Jamie Oliver pack from Homebase.One bulb white one bulb purple, and one clove (only) Elephant garlic. The purple bulb had more cloves than the white. That's why the rows are different lengths - and one is out on it's own.
