The NHM Bluebell Survey – update ~ by Chris

The NHM Bluebell Survey - update

Back in 2006 (and 2007), the blog posted information about the Natural History Museum Bluebell Survey.

This is an ongoing project, apart from studying the distribution of native and spanish bluebells (and the hybrids, which now may be more common than their Spanish 'parent') - the project is also looking at the flowering time of the bluebell (in relation to climate change / variability).  Full details of the project  (and lots of information about bluebells) can be found at the NHM website.


There is an introductory video, which deals with how to identify the different types of bluebell : http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/british-natural-history/survey-bluebells/index.html and also details on how to take part in the survey / project http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/british-natural-history/survey-bluebells/recording/index.html.

1st bluebells appeared in Twenty Acre Shaw (TN16 Bromley) 24.3 19.
Few and far between at present, but plenty of growth means that they could make a fine show
