What a lovely thing.

I've just sown some seeds of this and hope that they will germinate.

I have just bought some Eschscholzia seeds.  And I am very happy if they grow that easily!

It looks as if it has a flower bud. Why not wait until it opens to get a better idea of what it is?

Have you dug the remains of your plants up to take a look at the roots?  You might have Vine Weevils or Leather Jackets.  The Vine Weevils are white with brown heads and are usually curled up; the Leather Jackets look like greyish caterpillars. These creatures eat the roots so the plants cannot survive.  You can also treat them with Nematodes but you need to know whether it is one of these creatures or slugs because the Nematodes to choose are specific to each pest. They don't come cheap so you'd need to be sure what the problem is.

I've only just looked at Robert's second photo and I'd agree it does show Pearlwort. I have it in the gaps in the paving inside the greenhouse - it stops worse things taking root.  The first photo also has a few bits of Pearlwort but I think also has the small plant with round leaves that could be Mind-Your-Own-Business.

It's not quite clear from the picture but does this plant have very small round leaves? If so, it looks as if it could be Mind-Your-Own-Business (Soleirolia soleirolii). Not unattractive but when we had this is in a bed in Surrey it tried to grow up the side of the house, Difficult to get rid of.

good wildflowers for low Victorian garden wall?

Had you thought of native ferns?
