Hi

Does anyone know what these are please? Helping clear a garden and these were beneath a Wisteria/near to. Smallest size of a Snowdrop, largest a little less than a Daffodil.

    My thought too … bluebell bulbs.

    They could be alliums.

    my initial though too.

  • Might be a better option to replant into a large pot, just in case they are the dreaded Spanish Bluebells, which you,  or the garden owner,  possibly don't want to spread or encourage.

    I don't have any alliums in my garden, so wouldn't know.
    If they were alliums would the bulb have an 'onion' type of smell to help id?

    Do you know, I have hundreds of the things but I have never tried sniffing them! They don't have any obvious smell, but cutting and sniffing one might yield results.

    Just to throw another idea into the pot ... it suddenly came to me ... can anyone remember what Leucojum bulbs look like?  I don't really want to dig mine up to have a look ...
