This delicate flower creates a colourful blanket from April, with the season reaching its peak in May. Around half of all the world’s bluebell’s are found in the UK, and our native species is protected. This means that walkers are urged to take care when passing through a crop of the flowers, especially within woodland as these blooms will have been there for a long time. For everything you need to know about different species and fun facts, visit The Woodland Trust.
It may be the end of snowdrop season, but this means it is almost time for the bluebell to reign supreme in Scottish woodlands.
