OK, back to bulbs, but following the current theme, more edible ones. 
I've just been repotting bulb seedlings, starting with the A's.  I 
have lots of different alliums, most of which haven't flowered yet.

I sprinkle chives and nodding onion flowers (Allium schoenprasum and 
A. cernuum) on food, as the varied colours of the flowers are pretty 
on a salad or scrambled eggs.

I am expecting some of my other species to increase enough to use. 
Are they all edible?  How about some of the blue-flowered ones?
