the bluebells in my raised bed, & under the trees down here in Folkestone, have died now & need trimming or removing. Can you please advise best procedure now? The NEW gardening team that come in every two weeks to mow the lawns here in this communal garden, started digging up my bluebells in the raised bed I look after. having planted new crocosmia in the bed last month, I don't want the soil disturbed, so I stopped them digging up the bluebells........because they have been the only colour since the daffs died down, & I want them to come up again next year.
Can I de head them, & wait for them to died back, just like my daffs ? Be grateful to know what to do now? Heard mention of invaders "Spanish bluebells" on Springwarch tonight ! Should I have let the gardeners dig up my bluebells then ? ? "Confused" ???? - thanks, Tads ????
