Contamination can occur at any stage. One year I had Nicandra physolodes, shoo-fly plant, in so many seed pots it must have come from the compost.

Planting wild flowers in a previously heavy weeded area?

I treat them as plants and weed out what I don't want.

Hogweed is a challenge especially in grass. 

And enchanter's nightshade which I introduced against the advice of the person I cadged it from.

I don't direct sow anything any more. Too much competition.

There are  many different soils and habitats in the uk, wild flowers can be found in all of them. 

as an example jack by the hedge grown in poor soil is a miserable specimen. Grown as you would grow a border plant it's splendid and a fit food plant for the orange tips

Candytuft or weed

Sorry

I wouldn't whip them out til you know what they are though. Well grown plants, nicely spaced, maybe you sowed something else instead

Or is it just me that does that

B&B, if you have a question start a thread and ask it

Digging up old thread leads to confusion with some people answering your question and some responding to the original one.

And it doesn't take much to confuse some of us

Another ID please

Read your post quickly Edd. Thought it said spinach (boiled)

Cotinus coggygria

I've never tried it but in theory anything will grow if the pot is big enough and the compost, feeding and watering are right.
