It looks like Spanish bluebell Jenn ☺ English bluebells have all flowers hanging to one side of the stem.

I've only learnt that little titbit recently but it makes it much easier to tell the difference between invasive and non-invasive bluebells i.e. Spanish vs. English type. @kimguy

I think these also look like Spanish bluebells as the flowers look a bit big for English bluebells ☺

To be fair, they look very similar but the English type are fragrant and noninvasive whereas these are not.

They are particular striking in May when grown along side Red Campion. The combination of red and blue is particularly attractive. #companionplanting Add #candytuft for #redwhiteandblue

Bluebells can self-seed profusely. They need the winter period to break dormancy. You can plant Bluebell seeds but you need to accept that it may take many years before you see them in flower.

Bluebells will flower in May and grow to a height of about 30 cm. Once established they will grow back each year and if they like the conditions will spread over time.

Place in a sealed container and then place in the fridge. This is vitally important. The seed of the bluebell must have a period of dormancy in order to germinate. If you plan on growing English bluebells from seed, do not skip this step or else your seed won't germinate (for at least another year). #stratification
