This year we’ve seen some pretty impressive displays of bluebells. I’ve been told that the wet winter and spring has helped to produce lots of healthy plants, and that the lack of rain over the last few weeks has created the perfect finish. Bluebells aren’t very sturdy and the heavy showers that we normally get in April usually make them collapse.
Over the last few weeks I’ve seen lots of good patches of bluebells in Bepton, and in the woods around Midhurst and Stedham and Graffham. The bluebells at Benbow are always very impressive, but I’ve never found the best bluebell woods until I stumbled across these at the weekend. The smell and the colour was intoxicating.
