Now is the time to pick your Wild Garlic. You can use the leaves in salads and they are pungent and garlicky. The white flowers can also be eaten. Wild Garlic is a prolific grower and you can see it on banks and in shaded areas. Where it does occur, it is quite invasive and it has a tendency to take over. Be careful if you plant it in your garden.

 
There are two common varieties; Ramsons and  the Three Cornered Leek. Both  are equally strong. They also have all the well- known properties of the garlic you see in supermarkets or which you  may grow in your  own vegetable garden.
Well known in folklore for warding off vampires!
