Hi

I planted some bulbs in last autumn. Being a novice I forgot to write down what they are. no flower has appeared and all I have aid what looks like a 2ft blade of grass. 

Any ideas what this could be?

Thanks

It could be a 2' blade of grass Frozz. Is it just the one blade or are there several? Might  be a later flowering bulb.

A photo might help as bulb leaves don't all look the same

thanks. I have added pictures so hope this helps?

I could be there is nothing to do exept pull the growth out, just not sure.

Are they fritillias  ?

Or possibly unflowered crocuses or irises. Don't pull it out, the bulbs need the work they do for next year. Maybe you'll get flowers next year

I agree with nutcutlet - sometimes plants need to get established for a year or perhaps more before flowering.  They are often worth waiting for.

Ok thanks guys

On behalf of the bulbs I request that you leave them til they go brown
