Garlic Extra Early Wight (Hardneck) - This is the earliest variety of garlic to harvest we know of! From an autumn planting you could be harvesting fresh garlic from as early as late May! White skinned with clean, brilliant white flesh, it tastes delicious. Please note from 16/10/21, due to overwhelming demand, we are unable to supply Extra Early Wight. We will be substituting it in this collection with a similar variety, Mersley Wight. Mersley Wight is proven as a fantastic variety for the UK gardener. Large cloves with a bold and tangy flavour and an outstanding vigour, this softneck has one of the best keeping qualities of any garlic we know of.
Garlic Rhapsody Wight (softneck) - This superb softneck garlic develops into bright, large, bulbs that lift themselves up out of the ground as they swell, exposing wonderful deep purple streaks and mottling. Historically originating from the village of Cadours in south west France as ‘Violet de Cadours’, Rhapsody Wight has been re-selected and developed over several years to ensure it performs well in our UK climate. This new garlic has a fresh, zingy flavour, perfect for all your favourite recipes, and is also excellent harvested ‘green’. The earliest of all purple garlic – ready from June if planted at the ideal planting time of October or November. Please note from 12/10/21, due to overwhelming demand, we are unable to supply Rhapsody Wight. We will be substituting it in this collection with a similar variety, Caulk Wight. Caulk Wight is a fantastic hardneck variety hailing from Eastern Europe and was selected due to its large, plump cloves which are easy to peel and its spicy flavour. Very hardy and well suited to UK gardens the attractive purple marbling is a sure fire hit with all who grow this variety.
Garlic Solent Wight (softneck) - The best keeping garlic we know, the bulbs can last as long as the following March after lifting them in July. This superb, softneck strain yields large, high quality bulbs with a fragrance which is both long and strong.
These varieties are perfect for autumn planting – tried and tested, we know that they perform well. We choose only the finest quality bulbs. Each year we work with our friends at the Garlic Farm, one of the world’s leading garlic farms, and all of our garlic is sourced from them ensuring we always supply superior top quality garlic from expert growers.
You should always buy garlic from a reputable source and never plant shop bought, cooking garlic. All of our bulbs are certified as disease and virus free.
