Bluebells where they shouldn't be!!

So I am in the process of sorting out my dad's overgrown gardens, over the winter took advantage of the weather & cut it all back down the soil!!! In his front garden, we now have several clusters of bluebells growing, as well as the brambles growing back up, now what i'm asking is, is in the event of us trying to dug up the bramble roots, don't want to use weed killer if we can help it, we have to dig up one of these clusters??? They haven't exactly decided to grow within my plan for the garden!!! Help!! Thanks ????

    Don't worry Rowena. It is perfectly fine for you to remove the bluebells. I have the weedy Spanish version in my front garden and I dig up buckets full every year to try and get rid of them.

    They'll survive whatever you do to them.

    and if you move them to somewhere else they'll still be there because you never get them all

    You could dig down to your elbows and still not reach some of the bulbsimage
