It the anemones are the de caen sort they're corms, a modified underground stem

lily of the valley are rhizomes, another modified stem

Bulbs are the ones with the concentric rings made up of modified  leaves.

And yes plant now. I know they should be planted in spring, but it should have been this last spring that's why they're past their sell by date. They'll be too far gone by next spring

Your homework for tonight

We all had to start from not knowing. I'm old, I've had plenty of time to find out

Laburnum die back

Green doesn't mean it's still alive Carol, not when it looks as dead as that. It just means it hasn't been dead long.

I don't know laburnum diseases but I'm sure it will be a disease. It's not old, mine were planted around 1960, I've known them for the past 20plus years. They do have bits of die-back but I've been lucky and never lost a whole tree.

They're yews, Taxus baccata. Are they newly planted?
