Is this plant edible??

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 19:27

Thanks Igrow. I just let it seed and there aren't so many now. I've only seen 3 this year. A kind offer but  I should save my own seed and sow it in a controlled way rather than letting it compete with everything else

Things do diminish and disappear completely. I forget about them til something reminds me. I grow too many things and it gets competitive out there

I expect they be OK. It's no worse than cutting off the leaves as soon as the flowers are done and people get away with that.

St Peter's church in Ely has its garden open for the NGS next week Scott. 

How about yours next year

That's a lot of strimming. Worth all the effort though.

I have it forever but never quite as much as I'd like now.

That's beautiful Scott.

If the grass doesn't collapse I'd leave it, orsome of it til everything has seeded. It looks lovely dry later in the season. What have you got to cut it with?

Pete they need to stay in the ground until the foliage dies back then the daffs, crocus and tulips could be lifted and stored but the snowdrops need to stay in the ground and not dry out.

Bulbs are building up for next year as the foliage dies down, they take nutrients from the soil for this.

I suggest you put the snowdrops back in the ground, store the others dry and see what happens next year

How old it it and how long has it been there.

They have a reputation for not moving well
