Hi folks, I have been given some bulbs which I planted about 6 weeks ago I have no idea what they are. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm beginning to think I've planted Spring onions LOL.




Maybe they are Iris?

But do look a bit like Onions?

You may have to wait & see LOL xx

Thanks folks.

If they are onions or garlic, you should be able to smell them - you can't mistake it.

The first thing that I thought of was Dutch Iris, too. Onions have cylindrical leaves, so likely not that.
