Wood Garlic

One of the last of the spring woodland plants is Ramsons or Wood Garlic.The unmistakeable aroma of garlic permeates the woods and the white flowers line the edge of the woodland paths. The leaves and bulbs can be eaten though we have never tried them.From now on the woodland canopy of leaves starts to block the sunlight leaving only the ferns surviving in the shady conditions.
