Gardening in shade: brightening a shaded path with Ransoms, wild garlic, which is good for wild bees too.
Add a few raw flower florets to a bowl of vegetable soup and the explosion of taste is spectacular -- if you like garlic.
The leaves are attractive yet beware -- the plant is invasive. To check its spread, I run a rotary lawn mower over the flowers before final seed set and compost the leaves in a wild part of the garden.
The extraordinary lives of wild bees and the important role of gardeners in their survival.
is one of my illustrated talks. Please see http://www.peterlovetttalks.co.uk/page15.html for details.
