Bluebell Arboretum & Nursery garden

Annwell Lane, Smisby, Ashby-De-La-Zouch, Derbyshire, LE65 2TA

Bluebell Arboretum & Nursery: the beautiful woodland garden was created in 1992 and now covers an area of nine acres. British native trees were first planted to provide shelter and into the wood that this created were planted hundreds of unusual trees and shrubs.

It is now an enchanting woodland walk with rare plant treasures on display to entice the real enthusiast! The arboretum is well labelled and has an adjacent specialist tree & shrub nursery.

During springtime the garden has masses of flowering trees, feeling fresh and full of vitality. The varied wildlife in the arboretum becomes quite vocal, with a veritable symphony of birdsong!

In the Summer the Arboretum is a lush, leafy and cool environment on all but the hottest of days.

The gardens are particularly striking in Autumn. Many of the trees and shrubs such as Acers, Quercus (Oaks), etc. here have been planted for their vivid autumn colours. In a normal year, the best time to visit for the colour is October or early-mid November.

In Winter the arboretum changes yet again, with the focus now being on plants with attractive bark, winter flowers, sturdy evergreen foliage and architectural habit.

Please be aware that despite the name, it is NOT a Bluebell wood!

Review of Bluebell Arboretum & Nursery

Posted on by Robert DCustomer visited Mar 2013

I ordered a particularly hard to find small tree from Bluebell Nursery on a Tuesday. The same day I received a call checking and confirming delivery instructions and also offering advice and growing instructions.
I was asked if it would be ok to deliver on the Wednesday or Thursday. To my immense pleasure the tree was delivered on the Wednesday, superbly packaged and with all the buds protected from damage. I cannot rate this company any higher and heartily award 5 stars for service. I look forward now to visiting the Nursery and looking around the Arboretum.
