Also known as Ramsons, Buckrams, Broad-leaf Garlic, Wood Garlic, Bear Leek and Bear's Garlic. We love wild garlic here at the nursery, it means that Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner, which means lots of fresh home grown food and this is an amazing way to start the season, Stephen makes the best Wild Garlic Omlettes!

Wild Garlic is a wild relative to chives. It has lovely broad green leaves with stunning white flower heads that look a bit like snowing pompoms! The leaves are usually used as you would a herb and have a mild garlic yet fresh flavour to them and are best eaten young (around March / April time) but the flowers are similarly edible and are a great addition to salad.

Is often used as a Spring tonic beause of it's blood purifying properties and is thought to help reduce cholesterol. It is also thought that the smell can repell cats.

Often found growing wild in woodland areas (not to be confused with similar looking poisionous plants) as it loves a damp, shady place to grow.

Please note that this plants does die right down for the Summer months and regrow from their bulb in early Spring.

Apparently brown bears and wild boar love to dig up and eat the bulbs!

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Likes moist, shady conditions.
  • Prefer slightly acidic soil.
