In May we will return to Sandy Dell and the small woodland to the side of Widley Gardens to continue our long-term programme of eradicating Spanish bluebells and hybrids from both areas.  The plan is to replant with native bluebell bulbs, adding to the 1,000 bulbs we planted in Sandy Dell in November 2015.

Don’t worry if you can’t tell the difference between Spanish bluebells and native bluebells, the differences will be explained with examples.

Meet at the corner of Privett Road and Widley Gardens at 9.30am.  Parking is available in Widley Gardens.

Spanish bluebells (Hyacinthoides hispanica)

Native (English) bluebell (Hyacinthoides non scripta)
