Was Ivy a sensible choice ?

i don't think it's suitable but I can't think of anything similar but more restrained.

I'm happy with that one as Anthemis tinctoria, the leaves are right.

I may have to do a bit of research on the other one if no-one comes up with anything. 

Pulicaria dysenterica is Common Fleabane, a wild plant, 2 or 3 foot tall. 

What seed are you sowing now ?

They should be UK plants if Countryfile is what I think it is. I'm not a TV watcher so only a vague idea of that

Never grown lupins or mimulus, sorry

I've always started cosmos in pots but they're not something I grow often, The californian poppies need to been sown where they grow. They're set back by transplanting.

Packets of wildflowers are not necessarily UK wildflowers and are not always hardy.

looks a bit compact for that one to me PJ

wakeshine, you don't need a GH

Primroses, at once if not sooner, outside in pots, shady place will germinate in spring. Aquilegias, now, will germinate quickly or in spring. Don't bring these indoors whatever the weather. they don't need heat at any time.

Calendula and cornflower are hardy and can be sown in the garden now. cosmos and california poppy are not, wait til spring. Californian poppy best direct sown.

What's in the wildflower mixes?

I've thrown assorted digitalis and aquilegias about the garden but nothing much controlled.

some more shots of that yellow one might help (or not) close up of leaves/buds/seedheads, anything

I don't think it's an anthemis 

Plant ID please
