    Pic 1 are Daffodils with the long growing shoots ; to the far right of the picture look like Alliums .

    Pic 2 look like Snowdrops ; can't see any Tulips at all ; if you've any left they'll be the ones with the brown outer skin flaking off !

    Ignore the first post as the rest of your pictures have materialised .

    1 = Daffodils

    2 = Tulips and Alliums (on right of picture)

    6 = Bluebells

    3 = Daffodils

    5 = could be bluebells on the left and maybe the odd tulip on the right , difficult to see really .

    I think you've lost your tulips, none in those pictures.?

    Thank you so much Paul B3 for your help.

     My embarrassed Husband managed to rescue the rest of the bulbs for me, so now i can re-pot them and hopefully they will be ok after their disturbance.  Thanks again.
