Do you think that the Scottish bluebells will appear later this year due nto the harsh winter we have had?



I see no reason why not, Guest. Plants are very hardy and will survive the weather we have had. It is early yuet to expect to see them.

Thanks. I have a beautiful display of bluebells at my home and people wanting to visit. Normally I suggest the first or second week of May but am wondering if I should set this back a week.

Just for clarification, J, I think we are talking about the woodland, bulbous bluebell, sometimes called the English Bluebell, growing in Scotland. The name Scottish Bluebell is a campanula that would be called a Harebell in England.
It is difficult to say if you should put your visitors off for a week or not, J, The snowdrop walks all had to be delayed this year but who knows if they will have caught up by May.

I see on todays (Mon 5th) BBC site that they carry a report from the National Trust suggesting that the bluebells will be up to three weeks late this year. See this link:
