I would expect to see some signs of life after a few weeks, is there nothing to see at all? You could ease it out of the pot and see if the roots have started shooting, they're more important than the top initially. Don't overwater, the plant isn't using any.

This is theoretical on my part. I don't buy dried roots in bags.

I was determined Dove, I saved the image and enlarged it Didn't get me anywhere though, Enough enlargement gave too much blur

A bare rooted dried up thing out of a bag which needs to shoot?

Or have you sown seeds which need to germinate?

unknown red stemmed weed help?

You do need to let leaves grow well before you spray. The weedkiller is absorbed through growing leaves

I don't know the weedkiller you mention but those don't look as though they've had a dose of systemic weedkiller. Some of the quick action ones work very quickly and annual weeds are dead as a dodo. Perennials need glyphosate or a brushwood killer like SBK. There may be other chemicals that aslo work but forget quick acting, that's not going to work

Enlarged, 1 doesn't look like any corydalis I know, (or woodruff)

I don't know them all though

Can you get a closer view?

Agree with the rest

4 petals on oenothera (I think, might need checking)

Anyone know what this is?

I'd trace that flower back to base and make sure it belongs to the main plant. It may have been infiltrated

Two plants to identify please.

Tellima very happy in shade and has a nice scent to it Patsy. Seeds about a bit but not hard to control.

That might be a weed Caroline but not convinced. Could be echinops or a few other possiblities. Could you post a photo taken in good light tomorrow. Leaf colour can help in ID
