There's loads by the Ouse above Barcombe, take the public footpath at the top of the Sharpsbridge Road that leads to the wooden bridge over the river. Cross the river, turn immediately right and walk to the wood, following the river. There a metal thing across a stream at the edge of the wood. Then use your nose! It's a lovely unmanaged wood too.

What will you do with the garlic?

Use the leaf like spinach, the roots like garlic, the flowers make a great salad, use it like a paste on roast lamb, makes a great pesto style thingy if you chop it and store in olive oil. Tons of uses and it's free. I'm off looking for it today, try the area around barcombe mills pool, use your nose, It's very obvious when there's some in the area.

The stuff I know of round the Batcombe Mills pools is a bit too close to one dodgy smelling and very large septic tank. Beware. ;-)

Thanks for the pointers guys. My fave is to bung loads into a pea risotto. Yum. Bit early at the moment though, isn't it? May time usually elsewhere along the coast...

A question:
As it is illegal to pick wild flowers, (why) is it acceptable to pick wild garlic?
I am not suggesting that you should not farage for wild garlic, just curious as to the legality of doing so?

Illegal to pick wild flowers?? Bluebells, daffodils? C'mon, that can't be true.
