Spring flowers

Spare the spring flowers!

Early flowers are those that blossom before the first leaves appear on the trees in spring. Early flowers in Ukrainian forests include snowdrops, bluebells, cowslips, crocuses and lilies of the valley.

However, the large-scale picking of early spring flowers to sell reduces the numbers growing in the forests, and may eventually lead to their extinction.

You should never buy or pick these early flowers. They can be enjoyed in the forests, without doing any damage to the natural world.
