  1. I never knew garlic looked like this. Do they smell like kitchen garlic at this point? Posted 8 years ago
    1. Yes they do & you can cook with this stuff too, I've met many wild garlic gatherers, their baskets laden.. sometimes I wish it wasn't picked, like bluebells, they're totally wild & natural & need to be left. Posted 8 years ago
      1. Thanks for the info. This kind of conversation is what I hope JungleDragon will trigger more, not just showing nature but also learning about it :) Posted 8 years ago

Allium ursinum – known as ramsons, buckrams, wild garlic, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek or bear's garlic – is a wild relative of chives native to Europe and Asia. The Latin name is due to the brown bear's taste for the bulbs and its habit of digging up the ground to get at them; they are also a favorite of wild boar. In Europe, where ramsons are popularly harvested from the wild, similarity to poisonous plants regularly leads to cases of poisoning.
