English Bluebell = Scilla non-scripta, Endymion non-scriptus, Hyacinthoides non-scripta
Spanish Bluebell = Scilla hispanica

I always let my bluebells seed and die down naturally, to encourage increase. If I accidentally dig and chop up a bulb, I replant the bits and they grow well. The white bulb is wet and slimy when crushed, and if a bulb is left in the open air, it turns dark purple. If a bluebell bulb is not planted deeply enough, the plant will put a white fleshy root down and recreate its bulb at a depth of its own choosing (see photo). Bluebell seedlings look like grass at first, but are distinguishable by the fact that there is only one stem, which is round and not flat. Grass seed quickly shows more than one blade, and the blades are flat.

These ones with the bolder stripes are bigger and thicker than the average bluebell, and tend more towards pink. These are Spanish bluebells.

Bluebell bulb 
Shallowly planted bluebell bulb showing thickening of tap root. Bulbs happy with their planting depth just put out the thin roots and multiply the bulbs. A seedling bulb would do this anyway, because it starts its life at a shallow depth.
