    Ramp cultivation?

    very good eating, wanting to try and grow some in the woods around my farm....

    anyone grow their own?
    if so, any advice?

    I've ready most of what I can find online

    e.g.,
    http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/ncnu02/v5-449.html
    http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/hil/hil-133.html

    Basically seems to prefer wooded areas, damp but not wet... lots of hardwood leaf litter, east side of hill, early spring sun but shaded after that.

    any advice is appreciated, and thanks to Crissy for turning me on to them, nom nom nom nom yummm

    I haff some seeds, but I have not yet sown them. They came from my grandparents in PA who grow them in the back garden.

    These are very endangered in our area due to wild over collection, and growing your own is about the only way to get them.

    Wow! Wild Appalachian leeks!

    Insert your own joke at anytime.

    Are they that different from conventional leeks, in terms of cultivation. I had a bumper crop and more leek-potato soup last year than I care to admit . . .

    Love me some Wild Appalachian leeks!! Garlicky with a nice bite. I never even heard of Ramps until I moved to western NC. I've been missing out all these years.

    Yes Kula, they require low light, damp/moist soil but not wet. They like leaf litter, so planting under trees is a safe bet. I'm trying my hand at growing some this year. I'm in the same boat as Av though, only know what I've read online.

    Definitely different in taste... like Crissy said, they have a hint of garlic and maybe hint of horseradish to me.

    David, after too much 'shine, i take a wild appalachian leek
