Bluebell Watch at Ashridge
Our bluebells are around much longer than you'd think. From shoot to seed you'll be able to see how they grow.
Although you cannot visit the bluebells at Ashridge this year, we’re still able share these beautiful flowers with you in the gallery above. Without the heavy footfall of visitors, our bluebells will have a year to grow and recover. We will bring them to you again next year when we resume Bluebell Watch.
The bluebells are growing rapidly now after the recent sunshine. A layer of green has cover the floor of the woodland and the tallest are now almost 20cm tall. Let's see how they come on over the next week.
Since our last update, we've had snow, frost, torrential rain and blazing sunshine. The result of this weird weather has been increasingly bushy bluebell shoots covering the woodland floor.
It appears the cold snap has not stopped these plucky young plants from growing.
We've had some frosts over the past week. Will they slow down our bluebells? We'll have to wait and see.
The warm weather means the first bluebell shoots have started to appear in Dockey Wood.
