  1. Love the sound of garlic mustard, but sounds like it needs to be corralled to stop it going wild… where do I get it from please? I am in Australia.

    • I am in Ontario Canada where garlic mustard grows wild and is considered an invasive weed. I would love to send you some but I think it is too invasive to native plants, that is why I am encouraging people to pick it and eat it. Thanks for your interest.
