Wild garlic is good for you too; It contains more magnesium, manganese, iron and sulphur than common garlic, helping to keep you healthy and prevent illnesses.
Wild garlic grows in woodland amongst the bluebells and along the river banks. Its long lush leaves are similar to those of the Lily of the Valley and it bursts into bloom with white flowers and a unique garlic scent.
Unlike domestic garlic, wild garlic is championed for its leaves rather than its bulb. The bulbs, along with the flowers, are edible, but are much smaller in quantity. Wild garlic is milder than domestic garlic and the leaves are delicious both raw and cooked, and works well in salads and soups.
