What are these?

Hi all,

I've inherited a pot with plants and bulbs, however I have no idea what they are, they might even be weeds! Any ideas on what they might be?

Thanks in advance :)

    The first one is Clematis integrifolia.  The 2nd and third photo's I'm not sure about but possibly grape hyacinth.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    I like the look of that clematis, very elegant.  I couldn't have told you what it was, but I agree about grape hyacinth, or they could be alliums.  They look as though they've done flowering and are getting ready to sleep for the next six months, so you might have to wait for next year's flowers to be certain.

    Judging by the green leaves I think they are those drumstick Alliums, but starved in the pot and they won't grow laying out on the surface, if you can put them together in a group in the garden, about four to six inches deep, they'll flower next year.
