I received my ramps in the mail, and I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate them... And you.

You are a man amongst men.

Thank you so much

    I agree with the above.
    Every one of the ramps that he sent me are going great and every one has sent up a shoot with a bulb on top of it, now, I don't know what the heck that means as these are the first ramps I've ever seen but they seem to be thriving.

    Thanks again Sir.

    Hello :"Remington" & "84Bravo" - my pleasure "Remington" to send you the wild garlic - "ramps" - below the Mason-Dixon Line. My brothers - both - you took the same three obligations I did - you both know about - "towards all mankind".

    "bullshot" - that stalk will produce "bulblets" - if you let them mature - about 25% them will take root and grow if placed in a fine growth medium and later transplanted when they are about 4-6 inches tall. But be aware - what started out as a 10X10 foot space can become 100 acres in a few years if not controlled - "that's called using them in some way"

    Yes we did take those obligations, but I for one believe you exemplify them

    Thank you again for the ramp starters, and thank you again for being such a good man and a great example of the Masonic brotherhood

    Not knowing anything about these, and to add on top, we're still getting frost at night, I'm going to try the bucket trick.

    I haven't gotten my garden ready yet. Really slacking.

    But I have a lot of dirt lurking around, a bunch of 3 gallon buckets, and a care package from Mr quailhunter.

    I can bring them in at night, set em out during the day, and actually get a spot ready

    Thanks all!

    Hello All: As the plant matures during the growing season - the "ramps" - wild garlic - will produce a stalk that is thicker and taller than the leaves/blades. At the top it will make flowers and "bulblets". When the "bulblets" start producing green leaves/blades/little-green-shoots - I have picked some off - stuck a hole in the ground - and buried the "bulblet" part, leaving the little-green-shoots above ground. Usually about 1 in 5-6 have sprouted for me and produced a plant. I have never tried putting then in separate compartments of a seed germinating tray and covering them with a commercial germinating mix or potting soil mix to see if I could get a better success rate. You might try that just to see what happens. I have more than I can really do anything with so I never bothered trying for a greater success rate.

    If you don't want to fool with the "bulblets" - you can always smash them like a clove of garlic and put them in the place you cut open in your whole pork loin along with the orange slices and fresh rosemary sprigs.

    Best Regards - AQH
