Tiny seedlings identities

Some of them do look a bit primrosey to me, so it's likely that the cowslip has self seeded. Lots of free cowslips coming your way.  I've got hundreds of little foxgloves seedlings at the moment, I leave candytuff to self seed for next year as well.

I saw this early this year, really interesting. I was amazed to hear how huge the Kenyan flower market is and as well as the size of the auction house

I have started Honesty off in seed trays in the past and have had good results. They do have a large tap root so I pot them on quickly into larger pots than I normally would use. They are good at self seeding too. Last year some of mine germainted in damp paper bags as I had left them out by mistake

I think Pete is right. I quite like it and the one that I've seen had pink flowers, but it will spread quickly.
