I've not had any problems, I think any toxins remaining would be in minute quantities after mixing with green waste and composting. Don't some inks derive from plant products? If you were worried, you could just not use it where edible crops are grown.
Rubbish ad anyway as Marestail grows in fresh water and not in gardens. Or perhaps it's all the floods causing a problem!
I can see Daisy (Bellis perennis) and Creeping Buttercup (Ranunculus repens), but no Plantain.
When I click on a photo to enlarge, it is huge and loses all definition. Anyone know if there's a way round this?
I think there may be more than one plant in some of the pots - the top right one looks as if there are two rosettes.
Meeting time and place are fine. The house isn't open so holey socks can be worn with impunity
Primula acaulis is just an old name for Primula vulgaris. The bedding primroses are usually cultivars of P. vulgaris. No idea why they would change colour, though. Wait and see how they develop - they may end up the colour you expected.
That's a Sarcococca confusa or Sweet Box, it does smell gorgeous!
Bare roots are usually cheaper, good for a hedge. A standard is a bush grown on a long stem, decorative and good for a pot. So it depends what you want them for.

Nutcutlet is right, the native primrose is the one to get, and the most beautiful as well. My favourite flower!
