Q.Getting Rid of Grape Hyacinths

Anonymous added on April 9, 2014 | Answered

How do I get rid of the extensive crop of Grape Hyacinths which have now flourished throughout my garden? I have tried digging the bulbs out and the entire flower, but next year there always seems to be more and I am worried about our Bluebell crop suffering.

I am afraid that they can only be eradicated by digging up the plants or using a broad spectrum herbicide, which would kill everything in the area. You can minimize their spread (so you don't feel you are fighting a losing battle) by removing the foliage and any seed pods. This will keep seeds from being spread and weaken the bulbs so they cant produce bulblets.
