Hi all,

I am trying to find out what is this plant and if there is any advice on how to get rid of it as these are growing all over my lawn that was put up last year (before I moved in, hence not knowing what was there before).

I have pulling them out one by one but these will probably come back.

Thank you

Bluebells. It's just as well they are in your lawn: the removal of English bluebells from the wild is prohibited. But these may well be Spanish bluebells, which are a nuisance. Removing just the foliage is not enough to dispense with them in any case. They grow from a bulb which grows deep and it's that you need to get to. You should let these flower so that you can be certain which bluebell these are. In my view, bulbs in lawns should be encouraged. Remember, once they have flowered they die down for the rest of summer to pop up and flower again next spring.
