... Currently just doing a soil ph test, when digging to get soil from lower down i found so many (I think they're bulbs) deep in the soil, I guess I just pick all these out and throw them away? ...

I wouldn't throw them away until you know what they are - I'd leave them there and wait for them to flower in the spring - they could be daffodils, tulips, crocuses ...
all of them so welcome in early spring when nothing much else is in flower.

The gardens that we visited on Monday at Bressingham were full of aconitum - beautiful - the gardens there are open to the public and also have miniature railways, fairground rides and other attractions for children.
