"Why bother doing anything? They'd look lovely in a lawn in the Spring + you should get rid of them for good once you've mown them down on the first grasscut, they'll soon die off anyway so the "problem" should go away. "

Killing crocus bulbs

....so we are redoing a garden for the new owners. There is an area about 30' x 80' that was a flower bed. The new owners want it to be a lawn...all fine so far.I wanted to get it prepared and the turf down nowish, but the ground is so waterlogged i cant get on it to do the prep. However loads of small crocus bulbs have come up. Can I successfully use Roundup on them?, Or am i going to have to dig up every individual bulb....ie hundreds?ThanksAdam

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
