Full Product Details

Product Information

With intense indigo blue colour and a sweetly fragrant perfume, Scilla nutans, affectionately known as English bluebells, herald the arrival of spring.

These bee-friendly blooms are great for attracting buzzing wildlife to your garden and are a perennial woodland favourite, with clusters of cheerful, nodding flowers on bright-green foliage each spring.

Scatter the bulbs through grass or wooded areas and plant them where they fall for a naturalistic impact; or place them in a shady spot at the base of hedges or trees, where they will naturalise as they would in the wild.

This native British bluebell makes an attractive addition to beds and borders, as a punchy contrast to other spring-flowering bulbs or perennials, and a great choice for introducing a traditional cottage garden feel.

They will return with bigger and better displays every year. Fully hardy, they can be left in the ground or lifted after flowering to divide large clumps for replanting.

Supplied as a pack of 20 bulbs, size 7/8 ready for planting in autumn.

Top Tips

  • Plant as soon as you receive your bulbs, as early as you can in autumn so that the bulbs can establish a good root system before winter.

Care Information

  • Plant bulbs in groups in early autumn, with the pointed growing tip upwards, 10-15cm deep, 10cm apart, allowing room for clumps to naturalise and spread.
  • They thrive in well-drained soils, rich in organic matter. Apply an organic mulch to improve poor soil and water well after planting.
  • Best in dappled shade around the bases of trees and deciduous shrubs, or plant in grass or woodland, where they will naturalise easily. They are tolerant of full sun through to full shade.
  • If planting in grass, avoid mowing until the leaves have died back.
  • Bluebells can become overcrowded after a few years. Lift the bulbs after flowering and divide offsets and large clumps for replanting.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.
