Canadian aspect[edit]

I glanced by this article and realized that it has a very limited point of view. It seems to focus on West Virginia being the only community in North America with strong ties to wild leeks. The truth is, in Quebec, Canada, this plant has deep roots in our culture (pardon the expression). These plants are so immensely popular, they are considered a delicacy in these parts. Unfortunately, this popularity has had its downfalls over the years. Numbers of leeks have dwindled and strict legislation was required to save this amazing plant.

I would like to elaborate on the Canadian story of the wild leek as well as offer advise on proper methods of foraging this species to ensure its protection for the future.

I encourage other users to share their experiences with this plant to provide a deeper understaning of its effect on north american culture.

Go for it. :) youngamerican (ahoy hoy) 13:25, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
I added a few modifications to the intro to include Canada as well as a canadian law section... I'll be posting another section soon on correct method of cultivation so as not to kill the plant. I also tried seting up a more organized reference list, I linked my canadian law reference to it.--Big Dan 19:10, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
I havent looked at this page for some time and I noticed my section on the canadian aspect was reworked and I think it definate improved on what I had. If it was you youngamerican props to you! Big Dan 02:27, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
The links to the relevant Quebec legislation are out of date as of May 2014, so I'll update that. The link to the Globe and Mail article that follows is also stale. I'll try and find that article, but in any case the link needs updating. Userboy87 (talk) 13:36, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
I found the active URL for the G and M article and have updated the link in the article. Userboy87 (talk) 13:54, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Ramp festivals are considered by some to be contributing to overharvest. These festivals are great but should include a conservation message. =Tom Heutte —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.235.66.3 (talk) 03:59, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Home growing?[edit]

Can they be grown in a garden? If so, would it be in someones interest to start a commercial growing opreation? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Herogamer (talkcontribs) 17:11, 22 November 2010 (UTC)


Spring onion?[edit]

They're not spring onions. Who refers to a ramp as a spring onion? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.24.76.99 (talk) 21:23, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
