Oh yes Nutcutlet you're right. I've just dug out a picture of them in flower and there's leaves all up the flower stem. Just like Lillies. The withered flower stems are now bald and I'd forgotten. Thanks for your help.

Yes Nutcutlet but they've never had any leaves, just grew a flower spike. How will the bulb get fed. I'm a bit confused....

These plants have not grown any leaves yet. Is this normal? The flower stems are dying back. Thanks

Thanks Yvie. I think you're probably right.  The flower shape is right. an Internet search says the flowers often have a blue stipe and mine has a very pale grey stripe. I wonder how it got there....

Hi. Does anyone know what this is. I have j


ust found it in the border. I definitely haven't planted it. It's very delicate and around 6 to 8 inches tall. It has short leaves similar to a snowdrop.

Do you need to cut the brown bits off or will they green up. Thanks.

I've got the same with one of mine. I didn't think frost would affect them.
