I may have mentioned previously that I made the mistake of planting two little groups of tiny allium bulbs that I got in a mixed bag from a flower show.
Now the little blighters are everywhere and crowding out other plants in the border. They are pretty, but the leaves just flop all over the place when they flower and smother everything else.
I have been digging them out in clumps, but they are growing around the shrubs and I don't want to lose the beautiful fuchsia (Mrs P Wood) and rhododendron (Bow Bells) that I have carefully nurtured.
Does anyone know if I could maybe use a contact weedkiller on the allium leaves next year when they come through, before the shrubs start into growth? Would this kill the bulbs, or do I have to just try to keep them under control by digging them out constantly?
