Description

Allium ursinum is also known as ramsons, buckrams, wild garlic, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek, or bear's garlic. It is a bulbous, perennial herbaceous monocot, that reproduces primarily by seed. Bulbs are formed and produce very large, wide, bright green leaves. The inflorescence is an umbel of six to 20 white flowers. The flowers are star-like with six white tepals, each about 16–20 mm in diameter.

It flowers from April to June, starting before deciduous trees leaf in the spring. It is native to temperate regions of Europe, from Britain east to the Caucasus. It is common in much of the lowland British Isles.

It grows in deciduous woodlands with moist soils, preferring slightly acidic conditions. Colonies are frequently associated with bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta), especially in ancient woodland. It is considered to be an ancient woodland indicator species.

Height: 40cm

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Location: Shade or part sun

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Do not bury the seeds as they require light for germination. Sow the seeds on the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Leave them at room temperature for 5 weeks. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination. They will not grow yet. Then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 80 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-90 days after the warming period, though some can take longer.
