A ramp is a deliciously odiferous member of the onion family. A bulb at its base a ramp throws up green stalks with broad leaves that eventually unfurl. Smaller than a scallion, with a pungent garlic-onion taste and smell, I thought they would be perfect on a south-facing slope, partially shaded, with good drainage in my new woodland. Unfortunately, unlike sculpture, where I can exercise some control over my materials, plants don’t always cooperate.
