Little weedy allium

The only option you have is to dig as soon as you see them and make it a a regular task.  The little blighters like to grow amidst other plants.  Glyphosate is effective. At least remove flowers when seen B3.

Morning folks

You think you got probs with snakes Pat........we have some oretty vicious rabbits out back here.  Seen their teeth?? 

I remember as a kid in aussie being aware of snakes everywhere.  Also spiders.  Because it has been so mild here adders are still about.

For every person saying bamboo is well behaved there are 9 saying the opposite Blairs.  This for a very good reason. In my experience rich soil simply encourages rampant spreading.  

Those of us who understand bamboo cannot justifiably recommend bamboo to new gardeners. We have a responsibility to forewarn them.  Bamboo can damage concrete, tarmac and buildings.

Use cider vinegar now and then moderation though cos it could destroy your teeth.
