Ramsons, organic seed

Eco Heirloom


Belongs to the Onion family, it is a perennial (sometimes biannual) relative of the onion which grows wild in shadowy and nutrient- and humus-rich soil, predominantly in deciduous forests. It is quite rare but if it likes a place it thrives in large numbers which cover the ground in spring. Ramson, which is harvested in spring and early summer, grows 15-45 cm tall, but has large broad leaves and white flowers not like chives. Everything can be used, the oblong onion, the leaves, the flower-stems with unopened buds. It has good, mild taste resembling garlic and medicinal properties of the same kind. It is propagated by seeds and onions. The seeds need to be awakened from their rest by cold, either sown directly in autumn or in very early spring. If you sow at the normal time in spring the seeds can be made to think that winter is here by placing them, sown in light soil, in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator for a few weeks. 150 seeds/g. A portion contains about 70-80 seeds.

Cultivation advice


The seeds need to be brought out of suspension with cold spells. Either directly sown in the autumn or very early spring. For normal spring sowing, some weeks in the refrigerator's freezer compartment, sown in light soil, will make the seeds believe that it has been winter.


Distance between plants should be 1-20 cm.
