It looks incredibly like my Bluebells, they are about that size with the spine/crease down the leaf

You may have to just wait and see as some dont flower for the first few years while the bulb grows. I plant more of these from seed every year and they can take a few years to get to floweing stage.

Too late to plant Tulip/Daff bulbs?

I have just read that although you may not get flowers this year, you may be aswell to plant them in pots so that they dont rot. They dont like getting waterlogged. I am not an expert on these so cant advise properly, I must say though, I did want some of these in the garden this year so may end up buying ones that are flowering from a garden centre in the spring (alot more expensive).

Your welcome, I have to honestly say, that this site is great and so are the people that use it. You may tend to find that occasionally an expert might appear to be snapping or asking sharp questions. But in most cases its because they might need more info to help and just word it offly. Alot of people on here have ALOT of experience and will put most of us to shame but also there are alot of newbies here that may not now simple basics and just asking for some friendly help. Stick with us and we will all make England more beautifull than ever..

Is it true that if you get a tomato, take out the seeds and soak the in water until they mould, then clean them off and plant them its free seed..?
