Description

Create a hazy carpet of blue in your spring garden with beautiful bluebells! Plant these fragrant beauties under trees to create a mini bluebell wood effect, these vigorous and reliable bulbs will soon settle in and start to multiply. Not only will you see these dreamy blue blooms every year, but there will be more of them each time. Bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) are unfussy and will grow reliably in most locations. Even if you don’t have trees in your garden to nestle them under, they will quite happily pop up in pots and borders too!

Hyacinthoides non-scripta is a species which is native to various parts of Europe and the UK. Our Hyacinthoides non-scripta are cultivated in Holland and may have a slightly different appearance to wild English bluebells. They can be more upright with blooms in a paler shade of blue compared with the same species sourced from UK breeders.
