Q. Is It a Wild Onion?

At the end of the summer, I have in my garden patch a lot of bulbs that smell like onions. At the outside when they are dried, they have a bulb with multiple seeds on the stem. I wonder what this is. Is this a flower bulb? Or is it a wild onion?

Could be a wild scallion. have you tried tasting the foliage? Should be round, green, and tender with a little juice when cut.

Wild garlic can be very difficult to get rid of. I'm not sure what material you are referring to when describing 'tarmac'.

If you are pouring concrete, that would most certainly cover and kill the wild garlic.

Here is a great article about methods of removing wild garlic.

I have an issue with this in an area of my garden also, it will take a combination of treatment.
After I dig, I do use herbicide. Step and break up the waxy leaves before spraying. Keep working!
