also know as Sicilian Honey Garlic, Sicilian Honey Lily or Mediterranean Bells.
We have only a vague recollection of buying the bulbs last year They were planted in a pot last Autumn and left over winter.
Over a month ago they looked like this. We were bemused as to what they were. They had been labelled but the name had smudged in the damp weather and on the other side of the label it said pumpkin! Full marks for recycling the label though. The packet top had either been put somewhere very safe or thrown away.
A few weeks ago one of the spears popped open to reveal the little buds inside.
Gradually they all opened into buds which then began to open into little dangling bell like flowers.
We tried again to read the label and put into google what we thought it said which seemed like gobbledegook but we found its real name quite quickly.
Anyway now we know what they are and they are delightful and most importantly the bees love them.
