Ramps 'Wild Leeks'
Allium tricoccum. Ramps, a wild, beloved member of the allium family, are an early spring leek with bold onion and garlic flavor. Naturally found in shady, damp woodland areas, this vernal treat is a slow grower and can take 2-3 years to be of harvestable size when planted from bare-root bulbs. Plant in an environment that mimics a shaded deciduous forest, with leaf litter and cool, damp soil. Enjoy a sense of foraging each spring by planting these delicious treats!

Bare root bulbs should be planted as soon as possible after delivery. Plant in a rich wooded area with filtered light. Choose a site void of evergreens such as pines, laurel, holly, etc. Plant 3” deep up to 1’ apart with the tip up, slightly above the ground. Cover with leaves from hardwoods. If you do not have a wooded area available, use a shade structure, such as shade cloth, over the planting area to mimic forest canopy conditions. Provide adequate moisture throughout the growing season, not just during new growth periods. To ensure harvestable ramps for years to come, only harvest 15% of the plot each year. The active growing period is early and short. They die back in the heat needing protection from the harsh sun.
