Bluebell Planting Tips:
Plant bluebell bulbs en mass (close together) in Autumn to create a carpet of colour come Spring. Bluebells prefer shade or semi-shade that receives morning or evening sun.
Use a Dibber for planting bulbs.
Bulbs should be planted in holes about 3 times their size in dept, and approx 8 to 10 cm apart.
To increase vigour and flowering, divide clumps every 3 to 4 years.
Suitable for planting in woodland, under hedging, in lawns, and around large deciduous trees such as Oak, Ash, and Beech trees that tend to cast a shade.
We recommend planting a variety of different bulb species such as Crocus, Daffodils, Allium, Snow Drop, etc for a varied display of colour and interest.
