    Pic 2 looks like crocosmia and the last ones in pic 5 are cyclamen.

    Yes MU the ones with the brown shiny skins could well be tulips.

    Not sure about the white skinned bulbs though, I can't figure them out either.

    White skinned ones could be bluebells.

    grape hyacinth bulbs are whitish and shooting already

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • White could also be an allium

    The suggestions of bluebells, muscari or alliums for the white ones are all good for the possibles, they're proving a tricky one to pin down as a definite ID. You may have to wait and see what comes up to be certain novice image

    Forgot to mention yesterday, when you replanted the cyclamen, hope you didn't bury them underground like you would with other bulbs. They need to sit with the crown not covered by soil or the corm will rot.

  • Thank you for the ids and advice

    i didnt know about the cyclamen so i will go and check them and make sure there not too deep thanks
