Has anyone here had any success growing ramps from seed? I just ordered a couple packs of seed and am looking for some tips on growing them.
Would I be better off using all wood chips as mulch or should I use only fall leaves or should I do a mix? Should I build A raised bed to plant into? I’ve read it can take 6-24 months for them to germinate, it might be easier to keep track of where I planted them if I made a slightly raised bed. Should I plant them in fall or spring? Do they require much fertility?
I have a spot in my yard, on the western side of my house, which has a very old, large maple tree and 30 feet to the south a red oak. This area is shaded until around noon then gets dappled shade the rest of the day. However in spring, before the trees leaf out the area gets good sun, I can currently grow hostas and astilbe there. I have been slowly covering the grass with cardboard and a nice layer of wood chips and will be dividing my hostas and astilbe to fill in some area. I’m hoping to eliminate the grass completely here. Does this sound like an appropriate spot to try establishing ramps?
I’d love to hear opinions and what others have tried, whether it worked or not.
