I am a novice gardener, today I noticed this bulb sitting on top of some soil, I'm guessing a bird dropped it? I have placed a bottle cap from a bottle if water fir sizing, it's a pea sized bulb with roots starting Can anyone help identify it please?

    Bluebell or Allium maybe. Have you got either close by?
