Is this bracken?

looks like male fern, Dryopteris felix-mas to me

There are 3 fronds but not a frond divided into 3. They all emerge from the crown separately

What happened to my passion flowers?

They're big plants, how big are your pots? could they be starving?

I don't grow these and don't know when they start into growth. They may have died back and will start again from the bottom.

Plant ID please

But it doesn't look like mint to me so hold back on the mint sauce til it grows a bit and maybe flowers

Certainly not bindweed. 

If it's mint it will smell like mint

Catmints  (nepeta not verbena) also have a smell

Teucrium hircanicum is a possibilty if no smell to the leaves

Spring always comes in a rush, one day the babies need all the sun and warmth available, next day they're getting fried. Today I moved all except the real sun loves to the north(ish) side of the house where they get shade from midday. 

OH counted them. There are 292 pots, many of which contain up to 6 babies. A large number are aquilegias, which seed themselves all over the garden without my assistance. 

Is this normal?
