    Bluebells are later than many spring bulbs. I'm only just getting the greenery showing above the soil. These are well established ones too. If they are newly planted they could well be later. Don't despair yet!

    Hi
    I planted some English bluebells and they didn't do much in their first year, were OK in their second but this year have promising little clumps raring to go so it does look as if they have been multiplying.

    I live next to an old priory and bluebells keep popping up as weeds on my veg beds. I keep digging the bulbs up and carefully rehoming them, but they seem to like being treated mean as they keep coming back. Does this mean they are a very hardy old variety or is it that I'm not digging deep enough?
