Hyacinthoides non-scripta-bluebell is the common bluebell which is cultivated for us and not gathered from the wild.

Hyacinthoides non-scripta-bluebell as it is also known has copies that are not true to type and as such will not arch over which is the distinct nature of this variety. Bluebells as you would suspect naturalise really well and can be left undisturbed to spread in your own garden. Prefer semi shaded areas and you must ensure they have plenty of well rotted organic matter for them to feed on during the growing season. Use bulb starter to start them off when first planting as this will give them a great start and speed up the naturalising process. Will also work well in planting schemes with snowdrops, blandas, cyclamen and anemone nemerosa.

Cultivation Instructions

Plant dry bulbs at least 10cm deep and space 10cm apart; ensure the pointed growing tip is facing upwards.   For a more natural effect, plant small clumps of bluebells together with irregular spacing between clumps. You could also throw the bulbs across the planting area and plant them where they land.  Water bulbs well after planting.

Growing Information

Flowering height: 12-15″ (30-37cm)

Flowering time: April

Aspect: Plant in semi shade to full mottled shade in areas that are ideal for naturalising in woodland areas.

Soil type: Free draining humus rich soils

After Care:

After leafing and flowering each year, don’t cut the foliage off – the leaves use sunlight to make food which strengthens the plant for the following year.
If you want to help your bluebells spread, lift and divide bulbs after flowering. If your bluebells thrive, spreading will also happen naturally via bulb division and seed.

New season bulbs supplied from September onwards
