I liberated these last year from behind the shed. Too lovely to hide. I might move them again to the white bed.

Morning Deborah 👋 How do you get on with the Spanish bluebells? Do you have a problem with them? They are pretty. I’ve had some pop up but have heard and read they can be thuggish?

Yeah they can be, I inherited them with the garden, I had them in the last garden too. I haven’t had a problem with them so far @italydiva but it might come I guess

You’ve certainly created a lovely garden Deborah in a such short period of time. I’m torn as what to do about my Spanish bluebells, I do like them but not sure I could allow them to swamp my border 🤷‍♀️🙇‍♀️

I read on here that they are controllable by stamping on the foliage @italydiva

Interesting! I did have a chuckle to myself when I read this...my husband will think I’ve gone mad if he sees me stamping on my plants 😱😂
