    Default Wild garlic

    Hi anyone know where to get wild garlic seeds/bulbs from ?
    You have to loose sight of the shore sometimes to cross new oceans

    I would be a perfectionist, but I dont have the time

    Most garden centres have them now in plant form in the herb section.

    Or try Ramsons in the green

    I adore wild garlic. Planning a patch at home and lottie this year - the smell will make me permanently hungry I suspect!

    Love it too. We got ours from the local council garden centre where they sell off unused stock each year. It really spreads tho, so make sure you like it! Mine is just starting to peep through now

    I bought a pot at Arley Hall at the Grape Meetup last spring; and I noticed it is poking through already...I suspect that in a few months I'll have some to share but not until I know how much grows back.....

    Thanks everyone, have tried a few GC but none have it. Looks like I will have to order on tinterweb.

    now the silly question ..... do you just pick a few to use and leave the rest to seed themselves ? or collect seed to sow next year ?

    Thanks peeps

    Liza I think you use a few leaves like chives and pull a few bulbs - leaving the rest to prosper and multiply. Which I gather it does, in profusion!
    Whooops - now what are the dogs getting up to?

    Don't let it seed - or you'll never get rid!!!

    And what Jeanied said.....
