Can anyone help me identify whether this is a weed or a baby seedling?

Gary I am happy for second and third opinions. I have a Green Wizard Rudbeckia and the leaves are similar, very different from the Cherry Brandy. I will take a photo when it stops raining.

These seedlings looking nicer than weeds.

Sorry I need to clarify, are they seeds or seedlings, which seeds? why are they wet?

I start most of my seeds inside on a windowsill then move them outside when they are able to cope with the weather, depending on variety.

Yvie when my tulips/daffs die back I plant cosmos and nicotianas on top(they are growing now in pots), Then in November pull up the plant and top dress the tulips. I have also thrown poppy seeds over spring plants in pots, these will be pulled out after they have finished flowering just in time to pop in some chrysanths.

Geoff good news, your marketing has worked

The good news is that it is easy to change things in a garden, I often move plants that are unhappy or that have outgrown their space.

I would consider some height near the house, a few obelisks would break up the view and create some intrigue. You can do this very cheaply, I bought bamboo canes and painted them. If you like them you could go for something more permanent.

Geoff good news about the tom plants, who are your customers.

Yvie I am an avid double planter but not with mesh baskets, they worry me a little. I would wait for the bulbs to die back and then plant annuals.  Not sure how it would work with roses, under or over the baskets?

I have had a sunny morning after my failed attempts to get some free horse manure I bought 3 bags of well rotted. I have incorporated the first in my new dahlia bed.

It is raining now
