Can anyone help identity this plant?

Deal nut! Il try this weekend and keep you posted. I just put up my polythene walk in greenhouse so have just the spot to put them.

When I say walk in I should reall say step in. Bout 2ft by 4ft!! Best I could do. No room for a real greenhouse! Still though delighted to have somewhere to propagate my seeds this year!

Either way by this weekend ill be able to say if its a bulb or not!

The mystery continues

 

Im fairly sure its a bulb. Definitly not evergreen anyway. Always starts to make an appearance after my hostas, lupins, etc have reached the backend of their season.

 

Il try that trick with breaking open the leaf though.

I'm tempted to take them up and pot them and see how I get on. Obviously not in the right spot to prosper where they are at the mo!

When would you recommended doing that?

Hi Moved into my house 3 years ago and every year a few of these guys have come up but have never flowered. I was hoping to see what flower came up to either identify it myself or post here and pick someone's brains but for the third year alas no flower. So can anyone help tell me what it might be jut by looking at the floiage? There is about five of them so if they are something nice I will maybe move them somewhere that will help them flower. Could just be they are in the wrong soil or something. Also the ground there would be fairly moist. Not saturated but wet enough. Thanks a mill

Temporarily repotting amaryllis and hyacinths?

Thanks also for the hyacinth advice! Straight out to the garden with them so once they have done flowering!! May clump then together somewhere!

Great! Thanks for he help! I'm putting up a small polythene greenhouse this year so it should be ideal for keeping it in outside!

Hi all I have an amaryllis and some hyacinths that te in the middle of full bloom right now. I really want to keep them and try get them to flower again next year. Reading up in the amaryllis I see I need to cut back the flower once ids done and leave the plant to grow for a few months to die back naturally. Can I re pot it as I have it in a nice indoor ceramic pot. Was thinking of just putting it in a standard flower pot and leaving it outdoors to die back naturally. Is this ok? I do t want to leave it indoors for months without the flower but don't want to leave it outside photosynthesising if this will effect it flowering again next year. Also can I / do I do the same for my huacinths? Many thanks!!
