I've just noticed a little group of odd plants in my garden. I certainly didn't plant them and I have no idea what they are. Does anyone know, please?

They seem to have two seed clumps (female bits?) and a flower (male bit) daisy-chained on one stem.

They look like what we used to call Prairie Onion when I was young. It is an alium related to the wild garlic. Crush some and see if there is the familiar aroma.

I think Chris is right, having a closer peek it does look like an alium of some sort.  I thought it was at seedhead stage when in fact it is budding.  I need to go to Specsavers.

Thank you for your suggestions. It's not snowdrop, or the larger snowflake, as I have them elsewhere in the garden. It doesn't have a particularly pungent smell, but, following up the allium/garlic suggestion, I have found it.

It's Few-flowered Garlic (Allium paradoxum). It was the lack the usual multi-flowered heads of allium that threw me.

On the web site on which I found photos of it (one attached) it says:

"It grows from a small bulb. It is a rampant invasive weed carpeting the ground in some parts of the UK and is thus listed on Schedule 9 of the  Wildlife & Countryside Act (1981) as being illegal to plant in the wild."

Scared   Scared   Scared

It's coming out today!!!

All of that family are dreadful if you are in Dairy. Cows love it, especially the star headed true wild garlic but if they get a decent feed it taints their milk and these days you don't talk churns it is bulk tanks and that hurts.

I haven't got any cows, but everything I could find of it was in the bin shortly after my last post!

Invasive isn't the word! The stuff is impossible to get rid of, once a small patch has got hold. Rene has it in her garden, and it's spread everywhere. You think you've cleared it all one year, then next spring it's back stronger than ever.

Regards, Ray.

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

" I haven't got any cows"

Perhaps now you've got rid of the pesky plant you could invest in a couple.  Smile
