Wild Garlic just coming into flower

Wild Garlic (Allium Ursinium) grows in great profusion around the wooded lanes close to the Shropshire, England, home of Anthony Sargeant. In sunny spots it is already flowering but in the shade of the stone wall it is still only in leaf. It is a very useful plant for cooking (and makes excellent pesto. But best of all it is free! However if you do find some please cut in a way that ensures sustainability (you are allowed to cut the leaves – but it is illegal to dig up the bulbs). Just take a few leaves from each clump so that the bulbs can survive for next year.
