Bluebell

Bluebell at allotment.  (13 April 2020)

There are patches of wild growing Bluebell at the allotment.  The patch shown here grows up near the newt pond.

These are not the droopy-headed native British bluebell, but all the same are a cheerful late spring addition to colour and provide valuable pollen and nectar for pollinators and butterflies.

There are also a few bluebell that are growing in the strawberry beds.

Bluebell grow very very deeply and are quite difficult to dig out to transplant.  Best to leave them in place if you’re lucky enough to find a wild patch in your growing space.
