Bluebell Bulbs (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)
English Bluebells are synonymous with the sights and smells of ancient English woodland, giving late Spring carpets of violet blue, bell-shaped flowers with a hint of fragrance.
Why grow Bluebells?
English Bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) produce swathes of colour up to heights of 12 inches, and will multiply rapidly year-on-year as they naturalise in their position, giving more and more pleasure as the seasons come and go.
English Bluebells make excellent transition bulbs between the early Spring blooms and early Summer perennials, and are extremely attractive to bees, helping to create a healthy ecosystem in your garden.

We go to great lengths to source our bluebells bulbs. For the benefit of conservation, we sell UK cultivated bluebells, however we also offer Dutch-cultivated bulbs – they are Hyacinthoides non-scripta but may be slightly lighter in colour than those grown in the UK
How to grow Bluebells?
English Bluebells are easy to grow, naturalise and multiply quickly and require minimal ongoing care.
Bluebells prefer a well-drained soil high in organic compost, with the English Bluebell in particular preferring areas under deciduous trees or shrubs where leaf litter is present.
In early Autumn, plant the bulbs about 10cm deep and about 10cm apart, with the tips facing upwards and water well after planting to trigger growth.
After leafing and flowering each year, don’t cut the foliage off for at least 6 weeks as these leaves allow photosynthesis to feed the bulb for next year’s growth.
To help spread your Bluebells, you can lift and divide the bulbs after flowering, storing them in a cool, dry place before replanting them during Autumn.
