Anyone can take part in the bluebell survey. You don't need a special knowledge of UK flowers or to have taken part in a study like this before. Our guidance on bluebell identification is designed to be accessible to everyone.
You don't need to live in the countryside either. Bluebells can be found in gardens, local parks, hedgerows or woodland. Wherever they grow, we'd like to hear about them. Just follow the simple instructions on this page and then send us your observations to get involved.
- Print out the Bluebell survey recording form PDF (78.7 KB)
- Search for bluebells and record your findings on the printed form. If you have a camera, take some photos.
- Come back to this site and send us your findings, using the Google map and online survey form to record your bluebell results. You can also upload your bluebell images.
- Limit your observations to the same patch or clump of bluebells.
- Look at several specimens from the clump.
- Focus on plants in your garden or local area. This will make it easier for you to see when they start flowering. It will also mean that you can provide us with data from the same plant in future.
- If you can't fill in all of the details, don't worry, your information will still be of use.
- If you have any questions please contact us.
When you are ready, record your findings online.
