Common names for Hyacinthoides non-scripta include bluebell, common bluebell, English bluebell, British bluebell, wild hyacinth, wood bell, fairy flower and bell bottle. These are native bluebells to the UK that typically flower April to June – late spring. herbaceous perennials, they die back to the ground in the winter and re-grow in the spring.

Bluebells are most successful on slightly acid soils. As a species adapted to woodlands, the young shoots are able to penetrate through a thick layer of leaf litter, and bluebells are often used as an indicator species to identify ancient woodland. Bluebells are also frequently found in hedgerows, and in the west of their range they can be found growing in open habitats, including coastal meadows and love partial shade.

Plant bulbs in drifts 10 cm or 4 inches deep and about 10cm apart. For a more natural look they can be thrown and planted where they land. PDF: Planting Instructions Here
