Wild Flower â€“ Bluebell - Endymion Non-Scriptus
This is our best known English wild flower that is naturally abundant in woods and shady places. It flowers in April/May, and grows to a height of 30-40cm.
Sow inside in a peat compost in spring or autumn. The seeds need 4-6 weeks of cold before sowing to break their dormancy. This is best achieved by mixing the seeds with damp peat in a plastic bag and storing in the coldest part of the refrigerator. Alternatively, sow outside in late summer/autumn in a shady, preferably woody, place with plenty of leaf mould. Cover the seeds lightly and they will germinate the following spring after the action of cold and frost has worked on them.
