Bluebell Flowering Plants
About Bluebell: Bluebell is a small flowering plant in the family of Asparagaceae or is a perennial plant. In most places, it is known as the common Bluebell or Bluebell. The scientific name of a bluebell is Hyacinthoides non-scripta, and it belongs to the Asparagaceae family. The most popular varieties of bluebells are English and Spanish Bluebells. Bluebells easily grow in early winter.
Physical Properties: Over time, the bluebell plant grows up to 1 to 2 feet tall with spread up to 5 to 8 inches. Leaves are large and thin (similar to grass) with spread up to 6 to 15 inches. Branches of bluebells are dark green (round shape) to purple colour with lots of moisture, and the flowers are blue colour with tabular shaped. Seeds are black with round shapes or similar to papaya seeds.
About Plantation: If you want to plant Bluebell flowering plants in your home, garden, or offices so, it is simple. We have two methods for plantation, one is by using seeds and another by its bulbs. The seedling may take lots of time for germination because it is a hardy plant or needs USDA hardiness zone 9-10. By using its bulbs, it is simple and reliable. Always buy large and fresh bulbs with sprouting parts. Bulbs and seeds are easily available in local nurseries and online stores.
Prepare a Soil Potting and Planting Seeds: To make a soil mixture, take out the normal garden soil (50%) and vermicompost (50%). Mix it well and take one flowerpot (size up to 8 inches).
- Fill the soil mixture into the flowerpot.
- Take out the seeds and dig the holes (1 inch deep), and put the seeds into those holes.
- Cover all the seeds with the same soil potting.
- Spray some water and cover the flowerpot with a polybag.
- Place the flowerpot in a green-house or semi-shaded location.
Within 10 to 14 days, sprouting starts from the seeds, and new leaves and branches appear from the plants. Do not give water during the seed’s germination, and watering is necessary when the soil potting is dried up. We need to transplant them if plants grow up to 6 to 8 inches with leaves.
Bulbs Planting: One of the best ways to plant Bluebell is by using its bulbs because bulbs have a sprouting part, and there is no need for lots of compost. Please take out the well-drained garden soil with vermicompost, mix it well and plant all the bulbs into the soil potting (4 to 5 inches deep).
Before Plantation: USDA hardiness zone should be 9-10, and the soil mixture should be slightly acidic to neutral. In a flowerpot, make sure drainage holes are available or not. If there are no holes at the surface, then make 5 to 9 holes (Drainage holes are necessary). Cover the holes with a grenade or stones. Use a ceramic flowerpot. The distance between the seeds should be 2 to 4 cm.
Transplantation: Transplantation is necessary if plants grow up to 6 to 8 inches. Use the same soil potting and plant all the plants 2 to 3 inches deep. Place the flowerpot in a semi-shaded location.
Best Caring Tips
- Watering: During the summer season, give water after 3 to 4 days, and once a week in the winter season. Don’t overwater.
- Temperature: Keep the plants in a semi-shaded location, or you can maintain the temperature between 15°C to 25°C. For best growth, give morning sunlight at least 2 to 4 hours.
- Best Fertilizer: Before the growing season, give fertilizer properly like cow dung, coco peat, and vermicompost.
- Pruning: If there is no growth during the growth period, pinch out the head stems, faded leaves, unwanted branches, and weeds.
- Pests & Diseases: If any types of insects and diseases are an attack the plants, always use pesticide liquid. If root fungus attacks the roots, then use insecticide liquid with water.
Flowering Season: Within 3 to 4 months, flowering starts from the plants, and flowers are bicolour like light blue and dark blue with tabular shaped and give a fragrance smell. Many types of birds (butterflies, bees) attract the plants.
