The beautiful wash of colour as a sea of bluebells covers the woodland floor is a longawaited sight which paints the picture of Spring in the New Forest. The vibrant mix of beechleaf green and purple/ blue on a sunny day makes the perfect backdrop to the first break of the season, by following the Bluebells Walk. Pondhead Inclosure, a wellfenced area near Lyndhurst which is protected from roaming stock and wild deer. Broomy Inclosure, north of Linwood. Exbury Gardens and its Summer Lane approach a twomile drive with bluebell drifts is particularly popular.
The glossy green leaves appear in March and carpet the ground. The flowers appear in April and eventually stand about 30cm tall with bellshaped flowers. Bluebell flowering times can be used as a powerful evidence of climate change, The New Forest has 34 square kilometres of broadleaved inclosures, where bluebells flourish under the canopy of trees. Bluebell is also the name of a New Forest pony.
