Anyone had any success transplanting ramps?
« on: May 17, 2020, 06:19 PM »
I found a patch of ramps today - - Well, actually, it was my two eldest children who found them, but now they can show me where the ramps are, so I know their location.

Based on my first-time experience this evening, I can say ramps make a d**n good omelet.

I'm thinking about digging up a few of the wild ramps and transplanting them in my yard so that I might eventually have a patch of my own.  (According to the Web, they grow slowly, so I realize it will take a few years before I can hope for a respectable sized patch).

Has anyone else out there tried transplanting the - - and, if so, do you have any tips about how to go about doing it?

I trans planted about a dozen five years ago. I still have about a dozen that come up each year. This is the first year I have more than a few new shoots in with the older plants.  I think I probably have them too close to my chive mounds and they don't get enough light. They have a very short growing season and then shut down (like garlic, but even shorter). I use mushroom compost as fertilizer.

As long as the bulb and roots are in good shape they should take. 
I gave a coworker a bunch that were too wilty to sell several years ago and they’re still coming up.

Yes! I’ve transplanted them, they need a lot of shade, and like you said reproduce slowly, but it works. I’d put the bottom slice of the bulb with the roots back in the ground after it’s used, not sure if it makes a difference, but it can’t hurt.

What exactly is a ramp, besides a place to launch boats?

I thought I was in a different website: "My Dish finder"....

Allium tricoccum is a North American species of wild onion widespread across eastern Canada and the eastern United States. Many of the common English names for this plant are also used for other Allium species, particularly the similar Allium ursinum which is native to Europe and Asia. Wikipedia

We  had a bumper crop last year in NY. I cut off root and leaves. Sorted by size. Vacuum sealed in portions. Froze. They were great all year.
