I am cleaning out the pots from the terrace, left by the previous tenants. I found all of these bulbs, with roots, in one of the pots. What are they and what should I do with them -- isn't it early for bulbs to be in the ground and forming roots?




No - some people start planting bulbs for the spring in August. Have you got a spare piece of garden where you could re-plant them? I can't tell what they are - possibly mini-Narcissi - but they look firm and healthy, so you might get some lovely spring flowers!

Thanks! I think I'll put them back in pots - if you think that would work?

Yes, I'm sure it would. Fresh compost, plant about 4" deep, with something pretty on the top, like winter pansies, and you're away. Good luck. :-)
