Bluebells bloom later in 2013

Posted May 26 2013 3:44pm

Bluebells in Sussex appear to be flowering up to 4 weeks later this year as opposed to 4 weeks early as in 2012.

Fred Rumsey, a botanist from the Natural History Museum, London, UK explains: “Our initial impression is that flowering is between four and five weeks behind what it was last year.” He told BBC Nature that flowering times of both native and non-native bluebell species can be useful in demonstrating and quantifying the effects of climate change.

The UK has around 50% of the worlds bluebells .If you are a fan of these magical flowers, now is a good time to visit our beautiful countryside to wallow in waves of beautiful blue.
