We are very amateur gardeners and trying hard to keep things under control. We have white bells growing up everywhere - in borders, between paving slabs (which are lifting), etc. Any advice please on how to get rid of them please?
Are they Lily of the Valley? http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/convallaria-majalis/classid.2000018093/
I'm not going to be of much help to you if so ........... I'm trying very hard to grow some here
I assumed the white version of Spanish bluebells..
Don't let them seed and keep digging them up is all I can suggest for those.
Have you got a photo?
Thanks for your replies. No they are not lily of the valley - I am pretty sure they are the white version of Spanish bluebells. We have a whole border of them down one side of the garden (sorry no photos at present) and then some random clumps between paving slabs and other places dotted around the garden. What do I need to do to stop them seeding?
I would use glyphosate (Roundup) on them to be honest. Now's a good time to do it.
Remove all the leaves which would otherwise feed the bulbs for next year. I have done this successfully.
The leaves don't smell of onion do they? Just checking ...
Dove, I assume your question is for the original poster?
Sorry Joyce ... yes .......................... I have known Allium triquetrum to be mistaken for 'white bluebells'
