Must be the only one on the planet not wanting bluebells in the garden.. Lovely to see in the great outdoors or in semi wild areas of the garden.....I don't have those.....but they are invasive things along with blue muscari

At the last meeting it was decided.........

How do you know that Fairy?....er, I mean that"s preposterous.  Don't even own a bikini.  Besides it's a mankini 

three hours walking?  I think I would get bored.  I know people who go off for walking holidays and they enjoy them thoroughly.  Half an hour with the dog...maybe an hour...is enough.  You gotta be pretty fit Fairy 

surrounded  astilbe shogun with bowles golden grass that I grew on over fhe summer and cut back potted perennials to squeeze in polytunnel later.  It is so warm that nothing really benefits from being in gh right now.

Actually meant bulblets.....?  Got me thinking now .  Tiny bulbs?  I call them bulblets.   Always several attached to the roots 

no get rid of those fine roots too. Best if you can dig up soil intact and offer them to a friend who irritates you 

allium?

They are weedy, aren't they?  Molly (more yellow) rings a bell but I avoid those small flowered varieties like the plague.  Wonder if you are thinking about wild garlic...allium whose name I forget?  White flowers and grass like onion smelling leaves growing to about 8cm or so?  Again, digging thoroughly when you see them

Digging is effective if you can get all the bulbells out too.  Glyohosate does work but always the odd bulbell escapes.

a few years back I asked my local garden centre to get oxalis triangularis purpurea (think that's right) for me.  the manager thought it was lovely...my enthusiasm I think rubbed off....with its purple foliage and white/pink flowers.  Soon learned it is difficult to eradicate.  The odd piece now and then crops up

the "wild" green sort is difficult,,isn't it?  I make a point of searching them out, trowel in hand to dig out soil and all.

I guess it is the deadheading Kathy.....an hour and a quarter . Nothing takes me that long     I have a nice pale,yellow scented variety.....slug,magnet though.....tucked away in a corner.  

agree we are all different....have a passion for taraxicum officiionale right now . Lovely yellow flowers ....some even in mid winter
