    I don't recognise those but they're not bulbs.

    Possibly bearded iris rhizomes or something similar ...   ?

    They look a bit dark and wrong for bearded iris but I have no better suggestionimage

  • Lots of them in a pot, but no one remembers putting them in the pot or what they are image Only one way to find out I guess ...

    Doesn't look like Iris to me - but it looks more like something I wouldn't want, if I'm honest...image

    Yes - plant 'em and see Stephen image

    Someone will probably recognise themimage

    Only one sure way as you say, get them back in the pot

    One of the aroids maybe?

    Possibly jerusalem artichokes?

    Were they buried or lying flat on the surface.? The shoot looks a bit like Hedychium  but mine still have leaves and are dying down at the moment.

    What did the leaves and/or flowers look like?

    I think they could be Jerusalem artichokes. What do they smell like?

    Hello Swiss Sue, haven't seen you here for ages.
