These have sprouted up in various locations in my garden, I presumed they were weeds but when I pulled one out it had a small bulb attached, have they been planted deliberately or are they a type of clover?




Deliberately planted. It looks like Oxalis "Iron cross".

I'd say Oxalis too. Pretty but does spread a bit.

Won't grow for me! Has pretty pink flowers.

Thanks everyone, I've googled them and all the photos show them in clumps, the ones in my garden have been planted separately so I don't think they'll have the same effect, once they've flowered could I dig them up and place them together?

If they still have leaves you'll have to be careful not to damage too much root. But they should all spread into clumps before too long.
