British wild flower series.

Found everywhere at the moment this is Garlic mustard. It smells mildly of garlic and has been used as flavouring for sauces for fish and lamb. Also used in salads.

Its other name is Jack by the Hedge and indeed it is almost always found next to hedgerows and walls rather than in open spaces. It may be that its tall single stems are easily blown over away from shelter. It may need some shade to germinate well.
