Unknown Bulb

Hi guys

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather here in the UK and staying home! :)

These bulbs were in with a peony in a pot. No flowers; i dont know what they are.

Any ideas? I'm tempted to keep in a paper bag and plant for next year. Would you?

Any help much appreciated.

    Does the foliage smell of anything ? onion like ? they are not ringing any bells at the moment

    They need to be re-planted, in a pot if necessary and then watered and fed so they can build up energy for next year.  Then you may get some flowers.  

    If you leave them to dry out now while still green they'll do nothing and may die.

    I'd second what @Obelixx says about planting and feeding them - they look very "weedy" at present, and if you just put them in a bag they'll be even more weedy next year...
