That's what I have always used - no problems at all.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Does anyone plant garlic that they've bought from supermarkets/shops ? I know that with taters there's a likelihood of disease etc, but does that apply to shop bought garlic as well?

depends where you are/where the garlic comes from

a lot of shop garlic comes from Spain - much warmer cllimate. so probably won't do as well ni some parts of th country.

I've used the really garlicky stuff (it's grown in the highlands) sold in tesco et al and it's been fine.

You shouldn't have any problems really.

We had a nice morning in the greenhouse, sowing seeds and setting out the seed potatos for chitting.

Kitchen is now full of seed trays...but it is nce to be staring another year.

We already have in the ground onions sets planted last october and some garlic. I bought some elephant garlic which I will plant in pots.

Potatos are early and senconds + main crop + a mixed bunch from last years crop which I always keep some.
