    Schedule your harvest effort for between early spring and mid-summer, adjusting the schedule for local climate. If you are in the North set out to harvest the garlic later in the season, as the garlic will mature later.
    Identify the wild garlic plants. They have long, green, hollow blade-like leaves that bear some resemblance to chives. When wild garlic is in bloom, the plant’s leaves are topped by white flowers.
    Kneel or squat in front of the patch of wild garlic and cut the individual leaves from the plant as close to the ground as possible. If the wild garlic has blossomed, keep the flowers as well as the green leaves and blades.
    Place the wild garlic in a collecting bag or basket. Once you have taken the wild garlic home, store it in a cool, dark place until you are ready to use it.
    You will be able to identify it easily by the smell but you must wash all collected leaves and plants properly before using.

    Garlic has so many uses medically, does wild garlic have the same?

    Prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable.

    To a degree yes it does and another benefit is that unlike cultivated garlic it does not stink on your breath.
