I wanted to alert Bay Area residents that I spotted Allium tricoccum bulbs at Berkeley Bowl this week. I have never seen the bulbs for sale before, the source was "California", so I imagine some kind of commercial ramp-growing operation. They were delicious, though a little milder than I expected (it's been a few years since I had whole spring ramps). I managed not to eat a couple that retained decent basal plates, and planted them directly into my "woodland" area (about 3'x15' under some inherited Camellias). I'll let you know if I can get them to grow. I also wanted to thank Jane and others for advice on T. tricolor, I have decided to build my windowbox after all, and support it with chains for the Tropaeolums to grow up. Best, Max Oakland CA PS Berkeley Bowl also has oca (Oxalis tuberosa) from NZ this week.
