Here are the chaps almost all in rank, this is about a quarter of the area they take up. This garden was under brambles for well over 20 years and no one knew they were there.

I believe they call this naturalising, I call it invasive LOL

They are beautiful. Invasive is a word associated with the english ivy we have on part of our property. I happen to love it, so to me, it's just prolific. :)

Thanks Azalea :) Lucky is so often a double edged sword though isn't it LOL. One one side we have a 20ft long * 4ft wide drift of bluebells (white and pink too) every year, on the other, they die down in July and I'm digging up bluebells to try and plant things to take their place all in a 20ft square front garden.

Smilin

They won't survive the journey, once out of the soil they decline within hours rather than days. If I can catch the seed in June/July I'll happily send you some :)

Wow, that's amazing. Sad for me, though. They're so beautiful.

Any chance of sending them "IN" the dirt? Yes, it will cost more in postage, but if it works, then it will be worth it. Just a thought.
