The leaves of Allium ursinum, commonly known as Ramsons or Wild garlic, are edible and make a tasty addition to a cheese sandwich, a salad or to mashed potato. This species spreads readily, so give it plenty of room. Wild garlic flowers a beautiful white in April. As with other stinzenplants the foliage dies back after flowering. It therefore combines well with large-leaved perennials, such as Rodgersia and Darmera, as from May onwards the large leaves will cover where the Ramsons has been.

Please note: Give Ramsons its own patch where it can run rampant. Due to its dominant nature it’s unwise to plant Ramsons in a bulb meadow; it will dominate in only 5 years. The loose bulbs of Ramsons are susceptible to drying out: we therefore pack them in a perforated bag with soil. Please plant them as quickly as possible. However, if neccessary they can be stored for a short while in the fridge (frost free!).

Allium ursinum is native to Europe and western Asia.
