Indispensible in the kitchen, garlic is an almost fool-proof crop. There are three main groups - hard-neck, soft-neck and elephant (although the latter is actually a leek grown as garlic). Elephant garlic has the largest cloves but the mildest flavour. Hard-necked garlic has the strongest flavour and is easier to peel but for for storage and hardiness, soft-necked garlic is the best choice.
