Growing rockambole

With agrotechnics of ordinary garlic, agro technology of rocambol is similar. At the same time, there are some subtleties that you should know about. Landing of the rockabilly is produced in the spring, as is the usual spring garlic. For the winter, this culture is not planted, as the planting is often freezed.

Between them, the distance 30-40 should be maintained. Between the plants in a row, the distance 15-20 should be maintained. The landing depth should be 5-8, see.

A great importance before the onset of the bulb's ripening is regular watering. Seeds with rockabilly should be watered until mid-August. Along with watering, loosening must be carried out. It should be done after watering or rain, when the earth will dry out a little. To break out the flower arrows is necessary as they appear. On the growth of the bulb should go all the nutrients. In the first year, the division of bulbs grown from the teeth does not occur. It grows like a normal bow. Huge fist bulbs from them grow in the next year. It is with their large bulbs that this garlic is famous.

After the drying of the soil, the rockambol is cleaned. They start it in the middle of September. From the bulbs, the remains of the earth need to be removed by hand. Do this with special care, because they are sensitive to shock. Further it is tied into bundles, and the leaves are not cut off from them. Then the bundles are hung in a ventilated, dry place. Circumcision of the roots is carried out after drying the bulbs. Together with the roots, the stems are cut off. After that, small hemp should remain.

Store rockambol at room temperature. At the same time, it will remain juicy and fresh for a long time.
