In this video I add a ground cover of ramsons, a wild garlic, to the permaculture pond. Ramsons in flower are a wonderful sign of spring, giving us a harvest during a season where very little is cropping reliably. They’re an excellent plant to add to any permaculture system, providing a backup source of garlic for the kitchen, and in time can be a source of income via bulb sales. They’re maintenance free, fully hardy, self duplicating, delicious and financially lucrative. We acquired these plants via a client, who wanted them removing from the edge of his lawn, where they were taking over. Here though they can spread freely, stabilising and adding diversity to the pond edges. It’s a significant addition to the functionality and productivity of the permaculture pond, reinforcing the resiliency of the whole system.
