Ramsons – Allium ursinum


Ramsons or wild garlic occurs widely in the British Isles in damp woods and hedgerows. Its brilliant white flowers in April and May are very beautiful. Some cooks do use the cigar-shaped bulbs, although we stick to A.sativum, the usual culinary species, but the leaves are used in salads. Ramsons grow and spread in most soils. Ht. 9″.
