Best Bristol dog walks for wild garlic

We love this time of year – Spring is upon us, days are getting lighter and when walking through the woods you can smell the garlic in the air. We just love picking a bunch of the leaves and flowers to incorporate it into our dinner later that evening, making wild garlic pesto or wild garlic soup, or just throwing it in some salads. Here are our top dog walks to go on this month if, like us, you can’t get enough of it!
