I've bought seed garlic from Marshalls seeds for the past couple of years as I was unable to find a source in Ireland. The garden centres around here only stock garlic in the Spring and don't seem to have heard of Autumn sowing!

Marshalls are here: http://www.marshalls-seeds.co.uk/

The Garlic Farm is based on the Isle of Wight (I think) where most UK garlic comes from. You can buy direct from them too: http://www.thegarlicfarm.co.uk

I picked up some Germidour, Thermidrome and Cristo in Johnstown garden centre. They also have these varieties in Newlands garden centre. I believe Johnstown have Marco and lautrec wight aswell but there were none left when I was up there. I've been looking for German red, but can't find any suppliers at all in the UK or ireland so if anyone hears of any, let me know. Very Happy
