D.T. Brown Launches New and Exclusive Garlic Czech Mate

Garlic Czech Mate

Suffolk mail order ‘Grow Your Own’ specialists D.T. Brown have teamed up with the world renowned Isle of Wight Garlic Farm to launch a new and exclusive garlic for autumn 2018.

Czech Mate is an exotic hardneck garlic originating from Moravia in the Czech Republic. Trialled and bred by Colin Boswell and the team from the Garlic Farm, it’s an autumn planting variety which is best planted in October but before January at the latest.
D.T. Brown has been working with the Garlic Farm for many years and have seen a dramatic rise in garlic sales during this time.
“Garlic is one of the easiest vegetables to grow, thriving in all but the heaviest soils and perfectly suited to pots and containers. The breeding work carried out by Colin and his team has been instrumental in making garlic a must-grow vegetable on allotments throughout the land” Says D.T. Browns Tim Jeffries. “These new varieties are bred for the UK climate, have excellent disease resistance and above-all a wonderful taste, so it’s no wonder gardeners are embracing the ‘mighty bulb’”.
Czech Mate develops a glazed purple skin which thinly veils a beautifully striped purple bulb underneath, containing perfectly formed large, plump purple cloves packed tightly around a hardneck stem. Hot and spicy, it delivers a stronger flavour than most other UK garlics and has pronounced heat which is excellent for creating full flavoured dishes, an essential ingredient for Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. A vigorous variety, it has intermediate rust resistance too.

Garlic Czech Mate is sold in a pack of 2 bulbs costing £6.95 and will be delivered from late September, ready for immediate planting.
