Wander outside the garden into parks and woodland to enjoy Britain’s native bluebells this spring. Almost half the global population of these lovely wild flowers can be found on our shores, so there are plenty of places to soak up their beauty and scent. What’s more, their presence often indicates you’re walking through ancient woodland.
The nodding, deep blue flowers of native bluebells (Hyacinthoides non-scripta) seen up close in the woodland. Look out for other wild flowers en route, such as early purple orchids and wood anemones (Anemone nemorosa).
This ancient woodland spanning 100 acres is filled with wild flowers in spring, enjoy the delicate pale primroses alongside fabulous carpets of bluebells and yellow archangel
Bluebells smother the slope and hillocks beneath the trees creating a sea of hazy blue.
Within easy reach of the city is this oasis of tranquil beauty with wonderful woodland walks through carpets of bluebells.
Note:Plants are affected by the weather and despite our gardeners’ best efforts, sometimes they don’t always bloom when we expect. If you’re making a special journey call beforehand and our staff will be delighted to provide an update on what you can see.
