The bluebell captures the very spirit of springtime with its intensely coloured carpets appearing in many woods at this time of year. But is it flowering earlier than it used to?
Watch the video above to discover how you can help scientists find out and for tips on identifying bluebells.
Bluebell flowering times can be used as powerful evidence of climate change. That is why the aim of this survey is to build up a nationwide picture of when bluebells, both native and non-native species, start flowering each year.
There has been growing concern that our native species, Hyacinthoides non-scripta, is under threat by breeding with non-native bluebells. Your survey results from the past 7 years have shown that most bluebells in urban areas are now hybrids but that there are still large areas of the countryside supporting populations of native bluebells.
Find out more about the different species of bluebell, how they can help us monitor changes in season, and how you can help scientists by taking part in this survey.
Help scientists find out whether flowering seasons are getting earlier as a result of climate change or whether Britain's bluebells themselves are changing.
Anyone can take part in the bluebell survey, wherever they live in the UK. You don't need a special knowledge of UK flowers to get involved.
Find out how to identify whether your bluebells are native bluebells, Hyacinthoides non-scripta, or non-native species, by looking at the colour of the pollen and the shapes of the flower.
Once you have finished your bluebell survey, record your findings online using the Google map and submission form.
Find out the latest results of the bluebell survey and compare the distributions of native and non-native bluebells.
