Bluebells are one of our best known and most loved wild flowers and when in bloom en masse create a uniquely British floral experience of colour and scent.  The plant stands between 25-40cm in height and produces a head of up to 30 blue flowers.

Although most commonly a woodland plant the bulb can also be found growing in bracken covered pastures in the uplands, in lowland hedge banks and on cliffs in the North and they are most abundant in acid soils of pH 3.5 to 5 and seldom recorded above pH 7.5.

Unlike the Spanish and hybrid bluebells, the native plant has narrow leaves with nodding flowers mostly down one side of the stem.  The flower exploits the light phase before the development of full leaf canopy.  Shade in the summer months is important as it restricts competition from other species. The plant is characteristic of moist, freely drained sites.

Bluebells are a preferred nectar source for the Brimstone and Pearl-Bordered Fritillary butterflies and also important for bumblebees.

BULBS ARE USUALLY DESPATCHED WITHIN 1 WEEK BUT PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 2-3 WEEKS.

Our minimum order quantity is 50 bulbs, but it can be a mix of species.
