Weed/plant/seedling identities

First one could be a tomato plant - have you used any home made compost?  I get seedling tomatoes pop up all over the place from homemade compost. At this time of year I treat them as weeds and pull them out. 

Second lot are spring bulbs. Possibly muscari. The leaves start to appear in the autumn. 

Third is a citrus seedling.

Clari, what about a week or two doing research and development in East Anglia? We've got a few famous lifeboat museums virtually on the beach - you can't get a more 'emergency vehicle' than a lifeboat !

It looks to me like a recent division which hasn't started to grow on yet.  I divide hostas much earlier in the season than this so they get the chance to grow on and form good plants which will then really fill out next year.

Don't think that the nibbles would be an issue for me at this stage of the season.  I'd be more concerned about value for money - can I ask what you paid for this and was it an Ebay type purchase from an anonymous individual, or did you buy it from a recognised plant nursery's website?

How very kind of you DHR ... 

Have you been leaning over Clare Balding's shoulder or riffling through her handbag?  You must have some sort of inside information ... I'm sure such detail isn't available to ordinary mortals
