you'd better plant them, or you'll be confused forever.

the more fancy the tulip the less like to reflower

Those last ones aren't your onion weed returned to haunt you are they? Onions are alliums.

i don't recognise that bulb in your pics but not impossible.

Not much hope of flowers from those that had the leaves cut off, especially if they've already failed to flower. 

What sort are they?

they might if they got a good feed before the leaves were allowed to die back naturally. tbh I'd dump all the little bits and offshoots unless you're going to seriously grow on and feed every year,  I don't dig mine up (except by mistake) so the offshoots just grow alongside the flowering ones til they are ready to flower

tulips tend not to flower after the first year (except for the little species) not definitely won't but probably not much. Daffs are reliable. 

no clivia is something else orange, I don't know an orange ornithogalum but it could be that odd shaped one between the purple ones.

the top 2 pics look like all daffs

the next 2 mostly tulips

the last probably alliums

What's a wonderflower? clivia?

daffs are more likely to be worth keeping than tulips.  don't bother will little off-shoots of tulip

The leaves and stems look like Aster divaricatus but I can't remember what the flower buds look like. and it's dark and it's raining so not going out to look

Something like that would be pretty straight forward, plant them in a row and when they're tall enough bend them over to meet at the top. Interweave between the uprights as you go. Willow is very pliable in youth, you can knot and plait, anything you like.
