Be mindful when foraging

by | Feb 14, 2016

This is something to be mindful of if picking wild garlic (Allium ursinum) at the moment.

The first two pics look almost like the fresh leaves poking through, but if you stick these in yer gob, you’re going to experience a nasty burning sensation, stomach ache, swollen throat and breathing difficulty. It’s Arum maculatum (Lords n Ladies) and will grow to be that conical cluster of orange berries you commonly see. It grows amongst wild garlic, so be mindful of each leaf you pick. The third photo is wild garlic, growing in exactly the same area.
