What does wild garlic look like?
Wild garlic has long bright green leaves which are smooth on the edges and pointy at the ends. They grow in clumps and can often cover an entire area of an ancient woodland. The delicate white flowers form white clusters in the middle of spring.
Of course with wild garlic sight is not the only sense we use, often your smell is the first sign wild garlic is around. Often you can be walking through an area when all of a sudden your nostrils are filled with a garlic smell. Follow your nose to find the source and you have found wild garlic.
