THE BIG BLUEBELL WATCH
The UK is home to a significant proportion of the world’s population of Hyacinthoides non-scripta – our native bluebell – and the Woodland Trust needs your help to find out where they are.
Bluebells typically flower between mid-April and late May. This early flowering makes the most of the sunlight that reaches the woodland floor before the full woodland canopy casts its shade. Millions of bulbs may grow closely together in one wood, creating one of nature’s most stunning displays.
A significant proportion of the world’s bluebells grow here in the UK. You’ll find them in broadleaved woodland, along hedgerows and in fields. Bees, hoverflies, butterflies and other insects feed on the nectar of bluebell, and their flowers provide an important early source of nectar.
Visit a bluebell wood near you and discover carpets of deep blue flowers, stretching out under the tall trunks of ancient trees. Click here to see some of the Woodland Trust’s top bluebell woods.
And every time you let the Woodland Trust know you’ve seen a bluebell you’ll be contributing to their most accurate bluebell survey ever. Your records will help to monitor the status of the UK’s bluebells and over time will help the Woodland Trust to secure the future of native bluebells and their woodland home.
Find bluebells near you and put them on the map.
