|Hi all. I bought a bunch of ramps (Allium tricoccum) from the greenmarket that were probably unsustainably harvested - they have the roots on the bottom. I cut off the roots and about 1/4" of the bulb from each, so I have a bunch of roots now. I'm wondering if anyone's had success replanting the roots and growing your own ramps.|
I know the conventional wisdom on ramps is that they only grow wild, but I've seen a few articles about growing your own. So has anyone had success doing this, and if so, any advice on what to do? For reference, I'm in Zone 7A (NY). Thanks!

|The only ramps I've seen here have been near a reservoir, growing along with wild flowers in damp peaty soil....if you can duplicate what they like, maybe they will grow for you.....I never picked any ramps, so I don't know if I would like them....never see them sold here......|

|I've never grown them or even seen them selling around here. I think Celeste might grow these @pixie62560|
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
