Looking closely, I think there may be poppies in 2  just to the left of the pink label.

I made a mistake with the white flowers, they are that dreaded weed that explodes on impact when you pull it out.

Art, you could put a tall cane either end and tie a string accross the two, then bring your strings down to under the plants,

No not a poppy, its a spurge, if you google you will see the exact one.

The little pink white flower is what we call Ladies Tresses, not sure of real name.

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.
