- What have I dug up [GQT not CSI]?
Does anyone recognise these? I’ve dug up a load of the little bulb things on the right, often stuck together one on top of another. I’ve been gradually pulling up what seems like miles of the white roots, they are quite brittle, and seem to have infiltrated the whole garden. And I dug up the big tuber type thing as well.
I don’t know whether they are related in any way, but I think not.
It’s from our ‘veg patch’: a 4′ x 12′ plot of quite claggy soil, where until a couple of years ago we had a couple of big old roses which we pulled out as they were past their best.Posted 3 years agoScapegoatSubscriber
What shape was the tuber before you cut it? Is it one or two that we can see? Joined or two together? f it was like a big parsnip it may be horseradish. Are the sprouting bits we can see nearer to us roots or sprouting tops? Difference between a taproot vegetable or a proper tuberous root is whether the tuber is part of the root system well below ground like a potato,or a taproot like a carrot or parsnip.Posted 3 years ago
Crankboy’s on the money with that crocosmia , it’s actually a corm rather than a bulb.
