Barbarous Bulbs

Post by mikhurram » December 19th, 2013, 3:23 pm

Some bulbs if allowed to grow in a soil bed rapidly multiply and colonise the entire site. Notable among them are Muscari, Iphenion, Crinum, Ornithogalum and Oxalis. These bad bulbs cover the soil bed so effectively that at times it becomes difficult even to spot weeds hidden beneath their foliage.
Caution: Don't be tricked by their small size and protect your garden from being colonised by consigning them to pots only.
