Our familiar native fragrant bluebell or wild hyacinth has had several name changes, at various times masquerading as a scilla, hyacinthus or endymion. This instability has done nothing to reduce its status in everyone's affections, for it is the archetypal bulb for planting and gathering en masse - when bluebells are in flower, spring has truly arrived. There are charming pink and white varieties, but the blue ones capture the imagination most, especially when planted in drifts under shrubs and trees, and in patches of grass.

How do I eradicate (yes, I said eradicate!!) bluebells from a very small border in my otherwise paved frontage?? I constantly dig them up and give them to family & friends, but year after year up they pop almost as if I've done nothing the previous year !! I love to see them growing through our woodlands, but I am getting a little fed up with them pushing through small delicate plants and all but killing them!! Any suggestions please?
It grows everywhere round the garden without me doing a thing.It is pretty and in spring a welcome sight and better than taking from the wild our native.Its a good plant even if its not the orginal
