Hi Kimmy, I think they cross pollinate with the native creating hybrids which eventually kill out the native, of you did want to keep them maybe one thing you could do is make sure they don’t go to seed? Cut off flowers before they do. I’ve tried removing all of mine in the garden with the aim, that once eradicated I order lots of native bulbs :-)
Ohh I didn't know @Emma915Jones I normally cut the flowers off after anyway cos it looks messy but I can see how it would be a problem if in the wild or in gardens where people don't tend to. . :O its quiet sad isn't it reminds me of the red squeals
Oh @kimmy01 @brightcolours this will cheer you up after all your hard work digging up tree roots. You are now a fully signed up member of the #gnomesters club because of that gorgeous happy chappie with the slight Pinnochio nose Mr #gnome & @cazx that's definitely what's missing from your garden. They're all the rage on this site anyway. You won't regret it. Just go out this weekend and bring a cute little fella home to share your garden with.
Yay I'm a proper member now 😊👍👏🌈 Thank you... I like little miniature houses @angipangi I'll take some pictures tomorrow I bought a new one yesterday and gave it to my daughter and she rearranged all the houses in the fairy garden. 😍
