Bluebell Etiquette and Preservation

It is vitally important that you do not stray from the marked paths in the bluebell wood as trampling of leaves prevents the bulbs building up reserves ready to flower the following year. It is heartbreaking to see young seedlings that have been sowed to replace spoiled areas, crushed by thoughtless steps.

Destruction of the bluebells just to get a better photograph is not tolerated and spoils the enjoyment for others in future years!

 

How are the Bluebells?

Throughout the period we are open there will be an update posted each week as to how the wood is looking, with details of the appearance of both the wood anemones and bluebells. You can read the latest updates here.
