We cleared an area like this here, garden fork and a strong back!
Agree. I have used them for many years. Never had any trouble other than scratching the lens and having to have both lens changed as they could not re-cover one lens the same exact shade as the undamaged one.
As said they do not react inside the car.
Snowdrops are not usually eaten by most creatures, They are poisonous to most of them.
Though what puzzles me is that the hedges round here which have lots of wild plums and greengages in them are cut at what is supposed to be the worst time for pruning them and yet the hedges do not seem to get Silver leaf.
Rabbits are not supposed to eat Fatsia. Neither are deer. BUT they will eat them if sufficiently hungry.

Leycesteria formosa aka Pheasant berry. Quite a seed weed where suited. May be pruned to the ground if need be. Quite easy to dig out altogether too.
Most of the decorative Alliums, like the Drumstick ones come from places where the temperatures can go down to -12c and rarely get above freezing in winter. I have a feeling that these ones would need the same treatment as Narcissus etc. to get them to start growing properly. I was going by the picture on the packet and the bulb size which you mentioned as to the kind of Allium you are trying to grow.
Edible onions and garlic come originally from a warm climate (Probably Egypt) so they can take heat.
Just been out in my garden and our big Alliums are not showing above ground at all yet. They are cold temperature growers (from the Steppes) so I am not sure how they would grow in a warm climate. If they are big Alliums then the leaves should be at least 1cm across and slightly hairy.
