Most people do not realize that the life cycle of this woodland wildflower is incredibly slow compared with commonly cultivated members of the onion family. For instance the common garden leek can grow from seed to full size in a single growing season. Ramp seeds can take a year or more to germinate, and the plants begin to flower only after seven years. Foragers commonly harvest the whole plant, which obviously kills it. We have done the work of germinating over 100+ Allium tricoccum seeds in each seedling tray so you can transplant them for any woodland restoration projects you may be working on. Join us in our active efforts in the active cultivation of ramps while shifting our focus from not only being consumers of this beautiful spring ephemeral but producers as well.
Each order will include one seedling tray with our woodland soil mix and a minimum of 100-three year old Allium tricoccum seedlings.
We acknowledge and respect that S.C Specialties is located on the indigenous land of the Lenape First Nation and recognize the peoples who have lived and continue to live on these lands. Our farm is where we aim to leave a forest in our footsteps. My name is Sergio and have been working in the restaurant kitchen world for over ten years, feel very passionate about what I grow and am very excited to showcase our high quality foods to arrive directly to your door. We are always exploring different ways to restore our forest ecosystem, build soil, and preserve water quality while producing food, medicine and materials. We help steward 40 acres of preserved land and are actively creating a forest nursery, operate multiple food production sites including our log cultivated mushroom yard and many sansai vegetables which we grow under the forest canopy. We are happy to answer any of your questions with full transparency about any of our sustainability farm practices for everything we grow and forage.
