Wild garlic

Properly known as Ramsons. (Allium ursinum)
Locally known by many other names such as Stink bombs and Stinking onions.

Many place names derive from its growth in profusion. Examples are Ramsbottom in Lancashire, Ramsey in Essex and many others.

Ramsons grow in similar situations to Bluebells and often near to them but seldom actually intermixed.

Although having a strong smell they are surprisingly mild to eat and are used in salads, stews and soups.
