I'm new to the forum so first off a big hello:) I've stated to do some
work on my garden at my new flat and have noticed that my borders are
over grown with a plant that I need to identify. It's about 8" high and
the stem looks a bit like a daffodil but thinner with a richer green
colour plus a very small bulb, it also gives off a smell like garlic
A photo would help identify your plant. DO NOT attach a photo to your
reply; instead, upload it to a Web site for photos.
In the meantime, it might be society garlic (Tulbaghia violacea), which
has small, lavender flowers that are edible (interesting in salads).

WoW What a friendly group 31 views and not even a "hello" :(
You would be referring to garden banter. Many of the replies you get will
not be from there but from a Usenet group rec.gardens that garden banter
I cannot speak for the banterers but on Usenet it may take a little while to
be warmly accepted. Most people are cautious because some people are
crazy/rude/nasty/deceitful/brainless/wasters. It is sad that you have to
show you are not one of those not the other way around. This is a poor
reflection on humanity overall that when given the shield of anonymity a
significant minority will behave badly in social interactions but that is
how it is.
