Grape hyacinths

Steve 309Steve 309 Posts: 2,753

I'm in the process of removing hundreds of grape hyacinths from my Aged Parent's little patch and balcony pots.  I loathe them and she's fairly neutral, so they're coming out.  But one of you keen gardeners might want them.

Any offers, before I bin them?  Free to a good home; NW London at the moment, but travelling soon to Southampton and later to Liverpool.

    Bit of guerilla gardening?

    I very much agree with the above - verges etc. would benefit greatly.

    There's a thought.  I could chuck them out of the car at regular intervals all the way to the boat.

    Hi Steve,

    Just to say, these are a fabulous source of both nectar and pollen for honey bees. Please don't throw them away but plant them up wherever you can. 

    Bees must gather nectar from two million flowers to make one pound of honey

    Didn't know that.  Will try and get them in  the ground somewhere then.  They seem impossible to kill!

    Thanks Steve .... they won't spread too much if you don't let them seed!

    I shall fit and forget - somewhere out of the garden.
