Seek out wild garlic flowers amongst Gloucestershire’s woodland
The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire
Wild garlic flowers are pretty little things to spot on a summer’s ramble in the Cotswolds, and make for a delicious addition to your salad bowl.
While Gloucestershire’s ancient woodlands are impressive in themselves, peek into the undergrowth and you’ll find some aromatic treasure. Pick a sunny day and explore what lies beneath the majestic tree trunks because, as well as bluebells and fluttering butterflies, you should be able to spot carpets of wild garlic in full bloom.
This delicate little white flower hides a pungent aroma and can be picked (in moderation!) to eat in salads when you get home. Here’s a tip: garlic blooms go well with home-cooked beetroot, goat’s cheese and some green leaves.
