Wild garlic is a perennial allium. From its elongated bulb grows two leaves in the spring, shiny on top. Its white flowers can be seen from April to June. Under optimal conditions, wild garlic can grow up to 30 cm tall. In midsummer, seeds are formed and the above-ground part dies back.
Wild garlic comes from Europe.
Wild garlic is a cold germinator. Therefore, the best time for sowing is in autumn. Here, the seeds are covered with soil for about 2 cm. The cultivation is a bit easier with onions. You can always plant them in small groups of 5 - 7 bulbs. In the beginning you have to clean the wild garlic from weeds. When it stands longer, it will form a green carpet. The bulbous plant prefers a shady location with sufficient water supply.
