Lovely dark soil you have there 

Did you see the potato farmer talking about the soil he grows potatoes in on Nadiya Hussein's programme yesterday ... the right soil's so important.

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

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.
