RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

English Bluebell -hyacinthoides non-scripta– will tolerate semi-shade or sun but looks best grown in shaded woodland settings where the rich blue colour will be more intense. In the wild bluebells have a preference for acid soils and grow in a variety of habitats including woodlands, hedgerows, grassy banks and even alongside open coastal cliffs. In gardens, bluebells can be introduced under small trees, or on the north and east side of fences and hedges and also between the gaps of paving or paths. Unlike their Spanish counterparts, English Bluebells are highly scented and it is this scent that draws insects such as Bees, and Butterflies in April and May. English Bluebells look stunning when grown alongside Red Campion and Greater Stitchwort both of which have similar flowering times. Alternative Names for Bluebells include Blue Bonnets, Bell Bottle, and Ring o’Bells.

How to grow English Bluebell Seeds
English Bluebell seeds should be sown in autumn or early winter , either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. English Bluebell seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings, which are quick to develop, can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year. Seeds provide a cost effective way of planting up larger areas but will take several years to form flowering sized plants. For smaller areas and gardens it may be more appropriate to introduce Bluebells as bulbs which are available in autumn.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
