Product Description

With their intense indigo blue colour and sweetly fragrant perfume, Scilla nutans English bluebells boldly herald the arrival of spring and the onset of warmer weather. These bee-friendly blooms are great for attracting wildlife to your garden.

A perennial woodland favourite, the bulbs will naturalise easily to form 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 effect; or place them in a shady spot at the base of a hedge or around the bases of trees, where they will naturalise easily, just like in the wild.

Reaching a height of 25cm, this truly native British bluebell makes an attractive addition to garden beds and borders a punchy contrast to other spring-flowering bulbs or perennials and a great choice for a traditional cottage garden feel. They look equally stunning in containers for your patio or decking and are wonderful in a vase.

Supplied as a pack of 15 bulbs for planting in the autumn, 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.

Plant Information

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.
  • Best in dappled shade around the bases of trees and deciduous shrubs, or plant in grass or woodland, where they will naturalise easily.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.

Care Guide

  • 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.
  • Ideally positioned in dappled shade, 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.
