Or choose those that aren't top heavy, they look much nicer than big ones with scaffolding

I totally agree with raisin girl. Not much point in protecting a species if it's not nowhere to live.

might be worth unpotting it and loosening up the pot bound rootball if you didn't do that before.

I break the old plant up and take a little bit of root with the shoot. It might be cheating but it works which my cuttings often don't

Can you put some photos on. There are people on this forum that are very good at redesigning, though I'm not one of them.

But they're still Red Squirrels Obelixx, the genes aren't all mixed up. I' m not saying I think it's OK, just that it's years too late to do anything.

It would be nice if there were only pure English bluebells, but it's not going to happen is it? The Spanish and the hybrids have been here for years. They were well established here when we arrived 25 years ago. They were planted in a new area of trees along the road. Huge numbers of people don't know the difference. Others don't care. There's no way I could get rid of mine from all the odd corners and I'm sure I'm not the only one in that position. Though I suppose I could spray them with something nasty, kill the surrounding plants and maybe do damage to bees while I'm about it.

If Sarah's are Spanish any natives next door are already hybridised after 20 years.

Its's as useless as killing a few Harlequin Ladybirds.
