bernie egan asked 11 years ago

I’m a complete beginner and I have lovely maple trees in the driveway, the only thing is I can’t keep the grass clear underneath. I have bulbs planted underneath so I try to pull the grass by hand but it still looks terrible. can any one let me know how to keep this clear and neat like i’d see in every other garden around? regards fortfield

If you have bulbs in grass, they must be allowed to die down and wither before cutting away. If it doe snot look neat, the bulbs must be removed and planted elsewhere. This can be done immediatley after flowering as the bulbs get little set-back and to delay until after they have withered can make them hard to find.
