With our shop and studio situated in Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, we are lucky enough to be a few steps away from one of the most beautiful Spring spectacles. If you are looking for great places to experience carpets of our native bluebells, Head Gardener Lee, suggests the woodland walks, especially around the Amphitheatre near Maker Church. This new Bluebell Collection is inspired by these pretty flowers that are such an important part of our natural heritage.
The purple-blue colour of the Bluebell attracts bees in their droves and for many bee species, the sustenance of Bluebells’ nectar is vital during the early spring months. Bees are not the only wildlife attracted by Bluebells in the garden – with the flowers also luring butterflies and hoverflies.
No surprise then that this woodland plant has been voted the nation’s favourite wild flower in a poll organised by conservation charity Plantlife.
