Sod's law ...   They're the tough survivors of the group ......... what other seeds are in the mix and where are you sowing them?

WEEDS!

1.  Looks like Cranesbill ... aka Herb Robert  ... pink flowers, aromatic leaves when crushed, seed heads look like a crane's head and beak.


2. Mercurialis perennis ... aka  Dog's Mercury  ... green flowers ... often found in ancient woodlands. 


Both are wild flowers.

As someone who grew up on a pig farm, I've always agreed with Winston Churchill's opinion that, "Dogs look up to you; cats look down on you ... but pigs is equal."

Diseased honeysuckle

Powdery mildew .  Honeysuckles are susceptible to powdery mildew when they're too dry at the roots.  They need a lot of watering, especially when they're planted at the base of a wall.


 I would give it a bucket full of water three times a week, whether it rains or not, from now until the end of September.  


Start doing the same again at the beginning of March right through to September every year and also in March give it a sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone as directed on the pack.

Yep, they get in most 'dried foodstuffs'.  They'll lurk in cracks in shelving and love the damp so now you've wiped it all out try to dry it properly.  If the little so and so's keep reappearing store all your dried foodstuffs in sealed containers, jars, plastic boxes etc.  Total PITA
