Day 306 #365DaysWild

Around 2012 I was clearing brambles on the boundary and discovered a little clump of native bluebells.

One small clump of four flower spikes in a six-acre site!

I had seen bluebells growing abundantly in areas within Bestwood Country Park so decided to buy plants ‘in the green’ for planting near our one existing clump.

Twelve years in and you can see the progress.

I added further bulbs for a few years. 

And then began casting seed.

The results are satisfying.
