I'll order some seeds (thanks!) and cj, if you would be willing to send me some I'd be forever grateful. What do YOU need? We have a couple extra hardy kiwi and forsythia plants. We have so much stuff around here (mostly all babies) but possibly I could trade you for something or pay you for the ramps and shipping. Can you contact me? drmoffat@naturalhealthtechniques.com and our farm is http://elkmeadownursery.com This year we're working on putting in the trees for a food forest, a bee hut and a plot with beginning and end of season flowers for the bees. We have a long way to go and lots of trees to purchase yet (I've been growing them from seed for 3 years now) but it's looking up around here.

If you are looking for ramp plants in bulk, it is hard to beat The Ramp Farm
(1,000 bulbs/$198) They also have seeds.

Ramps need sun in the spring, but will not grow in it beyond that.
That's why they are native to deciduous forests, but not evergreen forests.

I'm not sure how much sun they need but yeah, they come out before the leaves on deciduous trees open up.

Mine are in a spot which is very ledgy, deciduous trees, near a small creek/ waterfall.

Thanks for the growing tips everyone. I'll plant them in our permaculture orchard and not in the forest.

Try them in the forest. Try them in multiple locations, hard to say in advance which will be the best spot.

I'll do that too. Actually I'll just ask Pan where to put them and the devas of the ramps. They always know best.
