Grateful for any help in identifying this plant in my garden
They are alliums but difficult to say which as I can't judge the size. If they are smallish then they could be chives which have red-ish buds before they open to a purple flower.
Look like chives to me too Bob. Lovely with scrambled egg.
Chives grow between 8 - 16" tall, depending on conditions.
Thanks BobTheGardener! this is really helpful- will start looking up and researching more about alliums and chives in particular- i remember purple flowers from last year, so hopefully will have some more this year.
Does it smell a bit like onions if you break a strand of it, if so you can eat the flowers as well as the stalks, they look lovely on a salad.
