Killing dandelions in lawn
Amazing, thanks so much! That was the plan for the bulbs so glad that's what you recommend too. I was worried that the soil would be ruined if I used weed killer but great to know that as long as it's more than six weeks or so after using the weed killer, the soil should be fine. The new spring bulbs will just be in the grass for a naturalistic look. We also have a wildflower area so trying to keep the garden informal.
I'll have a mixture of established plants (from my parents who are looking after them until we can go visit) and new bulbs. So will plant them in the grass in the Autumn.
