Ecology and planting
Bulb size increases during late spring and summer until the leaves of the plant begin to dry, turning tan brown from the tips toward the base of the leaves. Both can be grown successfully on a wide range of soil types. The greatest success has been achieved where the soil pH ranges from 6.0 - 7.5. The amount of planting material required will vary from 700 - 1,000 kg/ha, depending on the weight of individual cloves planted and the spacing used. Space plants 7 - 12 cm apart in the row. Spacing between rows will depend on the method of planting and available equipment for cultivation. Single or multiple rows of plants are commonly used, with spacing between rows generally not less than 20 cm.
