Bluebells (Hyancinthoides Non-Scripta) are an icon in the British countryside. Usually found in woodlands, Bluebells produce unmistakable bell-like blue flowers hanging from a thin stem.
Perfect for naturalising in shaded areas of a woodland garden or under the shade of a deciduous tree. If the desired effect is a smaller, more modest patch of flowers, re would recommend removing the faded flowerheads at the end of the season to prevent the plant from naturalising further. If trees or a woodland are not available, these plants are just as happily grown in patio pots and borders.
Plant these bulbs 15-20cm deep and space them 5-10cm apart in mid to late Autumn to experience the sights and smells of a Bluebell wood in the garden.
