I would be very grateful if anyone could possibly identify these plants for me?
As you can tell I am a gardening novice and I sprinkled lots of seeds (forgot what I bought) and inherited a very over grown garden, and cultivation of the masterpiece that I anticipated this time last year is not going well!
plant 1- This is growing in what was the previous garden owner’s herb patch:
plant 2- I was very disappointed when this triphid produced this tiny yellow flower. I then thought it could be a vegetable, dug it up…no. No idea now!
plant 3- I planted a red hot poker in this spot, but don’t think this is what is growing here:
plant 4 and 5- absolutely no idea what this seedlings are:
plant 6- Now this plant is a fast grower, but I sadly think that it’s probably a weed ?!
plant 7- well, I planted sweet pea everlasting in this spot in April and knew I had to stake them, then I sprinkled a few extra here and there for good luck and now these vines (if that’s the right word0 are strangling everything. I suddenly thought they looked like bineweed and could be inherited from previous owner, but don’t look like bineweed pictures of Google images.
Plant 8- I put ‘bird and butterfly seed mix’ down here:
plant 9- I thought this could be a thistle but it isn’t prickly:
Mixture 1: here’s a real array of plants, and ideas are much appreciated:
Mixture 2: I planted this out as a veg patch and can’t tell whether these are nasturtion plants left over from where previous owner grew them, or pumpkins, as she had those too.
Any ideas/comments are very much appreciated.
Many thanks for any help in advance,
