Thanks Ceres but they have stopped selling for this season

I bought some from e-bay seeds hope they are ok

You have to be joking right????!!!!!!  I've just spend a second whole day digging out wild garlic from just behind our garden fence because it's spreading through into our garden and threatening to choke my new hedge plus all  my new plants!  Probably another 3 or 4 days needed now to get the garlic out of my border, which is 21m long.  Sorry for the rant ... I'm feeling a little tired and sore

How many bulbs did you have in mind?  If you send me the postage from the IOM, I could send you as many as you want.  I'd have to dig them up in full leaf though cos they're about to flower.

Hi there

Looks like a Hermes collection would be about the best bet - it would cost around £10.

09/04/2014 at 18:59

That's fine please pm me

Like CharleyD I've been constantly digging up wild garlic bulbs. Do take extra care when you are planting these in your garden.

Fluffy Cloud, it's really nice to have someone who can empathise   Do you have any mixed with other plants?  I'm wondering if I'll buy one of those Fiskars weeders so I can try to pluck them out that way now that I'm getting them thinned out.  How long have you been trying to get rid of yours?

Cwoodward, we're going to have to go away unexpectedly but I've done a quick check on line and amazon sells bulbs

50 Wild Garlic bulbs, Ransoms, Allium Ursinum Free UK P&P

I didn't really check any further but it does look like you can readily get them.  I think it may be quicker than to wait for us to get back.

Thanks CharleyD I look on amazon, I'm not planting in the ground ,putting them into pots of lilly bulbs to try and stop the lilly beetles eating my lillies it's an experiment to save the lillies (fingers crossed.)

mm wild garlic pesto... I'll be making that tomorrow

12/04/2014 at 10:25

I have wild garlic and am happy to send you plants. Do PM me. I enjoy having it in my garden, and, it makes lovely pesto, milder than the real garlic. I make it in the spring and freeze it. It is delicious in stir frys and the young leaves are lovely in salads. The white flowers are a welcome sight in early spring too. Don't worry, it will not destroy your hedge plants and is shallow rooted so you do not need a Fiskars tool to remove it.

To each his own eh? One persons "weed" is anothers' joy

artjak and jatnik

Do you use the leaves or the bulbs to make the pesto?

12/04/2014 at 10:46

Nut, I would use the leaves   or have done so in the past - hopefully I'll be able to make it again next year 

Also fabulous with goat cheese 

12/04/2014 at 10:48

I'll have to try that Dove, thanks

12/04/2014 at 11:08
