Number one is a Spurge - euonymus, 

2 is a random collection of weeds.

4 is a dreaded buttercup.

I dont know about number 3.

And anything that encroaches onto the grass and kills it is a bonus.

I have just sown my canturbury bells,  fox and lupins for next year, no need to soak first, just pop in a module, they will all come up, tough they are. I will pot on probably twice and plant out next spring.

I grew the apricot foxgloves last year from seeds, cos they were free in the mag, but next year I will expect them to be wild pink colour.

I always save the Richardii lobelia and make lots of cuttings for next year and save the seeds from Bacoppa, they germinate very easily. Apart from that, i gro all the contents of my baskets and tubs from seeds and cuttings, never buy anything.
