Wild garlic – a woodland flower
Ramsons in bluebell woods
Allium ursinum, wild garlic, is also known as ramsons. It is a short broad leaved bulbous plant which flowers in moist areas and can often be found in the woods alongside bluebells. You can often spot it by smell in the spring. The white flowers can be spotted around Easter time.
I don’t usually pick wildflowers, but I have collected the fresh leaves where they are in abundance to take home and shallow fry in some butter.
