Can someone please identify this plant for me. I found a load of bulbs in my garage , threw them into two pots and these beautiful flowers are the result .

It looks similar to what I have which is Scilla Peruviana, but yours looks
a paler blue to mine, foliage looks very alike, sorry not 100%

I would say it is a Scilla and, very likely, S. peruviana as Dido has suggested.

I agree...and they're lovely plants! Your 'throwing' method of planting was a great success! lol.

Hi Anne! Are you in Truro? I was given sackfuls of these (Scilla peruviana), mixed with Amaryllis belladonna by someone in Truro via freecycle - and they'd described them as Agapanthus! I was totally chuffed :-)
