    Looks like  hyacinths to me. Right time of year as well, a bit early for English bluebells

    They're not native bluebells I'm afraid. Habit and shape is wrong.

    An easy way to tell is the pollen. Native ones have creamy pollen - the Spanish invaders have blue.

    Yes - too early nut - I'd forgotten that.

    They look like the ones that are a cross between the natives and the Spanish ones. Or did you mean just Hyacinths? They look a bit 'bare', if you know what I mean

    From pictures and reading could they be the transforming from British to Spanish my fathers convinced they are British and they came from his uncles farm 30 odd years ago I'm only trying to establish as I want to replant British Bluebells on my mothers resting place in a natural burial ground which why any help and advice is important to ensure I get it right for her

    Might they be a type of Scilla?  It's the time of year for them

    This is an English Bluebell, yours are not the same, it's too early for B as said before. I would suggest buying a pack for your needs.?

    I live in fear and desperation,
    should I die before I die to live again.
