"interesting, I've been told it can be invasive here. Might try my luck with some seeds and see how I get on. Good luck with yours, maybe let us know how you get on. "

"bulbs would be easier, but you cannot import them, seeds only. Whilst looking for the seeds I came across no reference to it being a pest, in fact 3 of us have been trying to grow it from seed with no success for 2 years."

"Thanks muggy for the reply. I think I just answered you twice oops, still getting the hang of this platform. I was told that wild garlic is almost a nuisance plant in some parts of NZ so thought I might be able to source locally. I do have friends…"

Looking for wild garlic

Hi all, have just joined this site so hope I'm posting in the right place! I wondered if anyone had any Allium Ursinum (aka ramsons, wild garlic, boars garlic) seed or bulbs I could purchase or possibly swap for? Been looking for a while, I am located in Tauranga. Thanks heaps :-)See More

Hi Sonja :)

have learnt that not everyone is receiving the ooooby gathering messages I've been sending via this website, for some reason...  so thought I'd better touch base and see if you are getting them, and if not - if you'd like to be in the loop just give me your email address and will fwd them that way ;)


normally there are backyard gatherings the 2nd sat of each month between 10am-12noon, and a great way to share produce and swap seeds etc :)

this month is sustainable backyards month, so we have extra events - we had a stall at the nashi harvest festival at the arty house in tepuna last wkend which was fun :)  and a gathering at the mt community garden yesterday.  next weekend on sun 16th we'll have an ooooby share table as part of the stalls at they sydenham botanic reserve in otumoetai, 1-4pm.  and sat the 22nd we'll have an ooooby share table at the envirofest family funday/workshop day at the historic village 10-3pm  ;)

might try some sunday gatherings from april to see how that suits people and that gathering will probably be at Jane Powel's in Papamoa that month, she's the one who often runs the 'make your own probiotics' and cheesemaking workshops.

hope you are enjoying 2014, and look forward to seeing you if you'd like to come along sometime :)

- if you would like the gatherings emailed, you can send your email address in a private message, by either clicking 'add as friend' at the top left of my page, or text it to my mobile 021 064 9814 ;)
