    3 cornered leeks are delish...use like chives/mild spring onions Plus you can eat the flower too, which looks pretty on salads.. TBH I can think of worst invasive plants than wild garlic and 3 cornered leeks!!

      Yes, you can eat the flowers (mild flavour) and the leaves (slightly stronger). When out on a day's walk I often pick some and put them on my sandwiches. Lovely! Don't let this great free food go to waste, get on and eat some

        never fear Northepaul, I also have a good selection of 'worse' invasive plants - groundelder, bindweed, sycamores, nettles, comfrey (the latter goes for liquid feed of course). That'll do me!

        I did try the 3 cornered leek and wasn't too fussed. Then I pulled loads of it out to give a bit of space to other plants, and got a bit sickened by the smell, think it has put me off.

        But I'm up for growing some wild garlic - would love some ideas on how best to keep in in check!
