me neither until I started reading up. Hester introduced me to the Gourmet Garlic site and from there, I started trawling the web for other sites.

thanks alot, my plaiting skills have improved with practice (even if I say so myself! :) I don't know the varieties of any of my garlic and still trying to finger out what groups they are let alone the name :)

I have two types with the vivid purple bulb wrappers, a weakly bolting softneck that Kali gave me that has a lovely mild flavour and matures early and is possibly an Asiatic/Turban and a hardneck with only 4 cloves that could be a Creole or Marbled purple stripe.

I think that the Serpent Early Red is a rocambole which has more cloves per bulb than either of the purple softneck or the hardneck I grow. I'll send you a couple of the dark purple rounds and some bulbils of the hardneck and maybe you can try to figure out which group they belong to.

What's Buzzing?
