How wonderful does a drift of bluebells look through your garden beds or naturalised in your lawn. We just want to plant them everywhere. 

Bluebells are one of the few spring bulbs that actually tolerate shade. Being native to the edges of woodland areas, they will grow well in dappled light. In cool climates they will also tolerate full sun.

Bluebells look amazing planted beneath deciduous trees, in drifts or even pots. They are even tolerant of root competition.

Plant Bluebells into compost rich, well drained soil. Plant 10-20cm deep and around 10cm apart.

The bulbs are best planted where they can be left to naturalise. The Bluebell bulbs will multiply gradually. Add a general purpose fertiliser such as blood and bone when they are in bloom.

They are also great for cutting and bringing indoors.
