Why We Love It

Hyacinthoides non-scripta.

English grown cultivated stocks.

Fragrant blue flowers grown from English cultivated stocks.

Hyacinthoides (Bluebells) like full sun or partial shade and a well-drained soil with a good supply of humus such as leaf mould or compost.

Ideal for naturalising in borders, wild gardens, woodlands and between shrubs and trees.

Once established, hyacinthoides (previously classified as scilla) will spread rapidly.

Planting Calendar

Plant in September, October, November.

Flowers in May.
