Wild garlic
« on: April 16, 2013, 10:24 »
A friend gave me some wild garlic plants last year, which I kept in pots and thought I'd killed but last night I saw green shoots popping up.

I am thinking about taking the survivors down to the plot and sticking them in the ground under the neighbouring hedge.

How easily does it spread? Would I be cursing myself in a year or so? More importantly, would my neighbours?

It self seeds like mad get in between other plants and any space it can. I have some in my Garden I have been trying to get rid of for years and as its spread to next door keeps coming back.

Keep it in a pot and don't let it seed.

I went for a walk with the family and dog through a forest near me yesterday and it was growing every where, i picked some to add to last nights dinner, i also ate some while i was walking under the wifes protest, think i might dig some up and plant it in a big pot for a yearly supply, pick it and freeze it.

Thanks - I don't want to infest my neighbours! I'll talk to the Committee chaps and see if I can put it in the boggy uncultivated end of the field.
