What is this bulb? And plant?

Hi. I have just been doing some hand raking in the garden and whilst doing it I raked up these bulbs that are pretty close to the green plant (see both photos).
Does anyone know what they are? And are they likely to be one and the same thing?
I am actually sowing some British woodland flower seeds at the moment in a shadier part of the garden. So wondering if I should take out these bulbs or leave them in. If they do flower i might leave them and sow around . . .

Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
It could well have been here since the original owners (early 1960s)
The dwarf form of this saxifrage grows well here in full sun, and is smothered in a froth of pink flowers.
I leave the stems on after flowering is over as they turn a rather nice deep rusty red. I also have it in partial shade.
