My garden is being taken over with wild bluebells, how do I get rid of them?

When I moved into my house over 15 years ago we had a handful of wil bluebells, we liked them so have just let them grow. However they have now taken over our chipped path around the house and spread onto the borders.



I would say weedkill the bluebells with sodium chlorate on you bark paths. The rest you will have to dig out.

U could be more Earth Freindly & sell them cheaply to people who want them or offer them free to Persons willing 2 remove them 4 u! :)

try your local freecycle group - I recently passed on some unwanted strawbs this way. Freecycle is gr8 for loads of stuff, some quite quirky.

You will have to dig very deep to get them out - they go along way down - as I found out when I tried to move some
