Disturbing a newly planted Peony

I don't find they mind being moved at all

What is this plant.

I think this is another one like Euphorbia lathyris, distributed by aliens. I've never introduced  it but every few years another lot appear. Some are variegated.

all my seedlings have come up outdoors already?

when you sow seeds in autumn some will come up straight away, either because they don't have a dormant period or because they haven't yet gone dormant. 

If you froze the seeds dry for that time all you did was store them.

If you sowed them is moist compost you have done winter's job already and those seeds that would have germinated in spring have germinated now.

They are all hardy, left to themselves in the garden these plants self-seed and multiply. You could prick out and protect a few and leave the rest where they are. See which do best

Try Silene vulgaris, Bladder Campion, if it's taller

I think it's too deep, buds should point up, just below the surface.

the little mauve one is an erodium, I think it's the one called 'Bishop's Form'

the orange one looks like an aloe but not plants I can ID with accuracy

the white one is a silene, given where you are, Silene maritima maybe. 

I know tamarisk but I've never grown it

That's OK then. Inula helenium

I get self seeded ones, I don't find they spread by roots like some other inulas

ID please

Are they only just flowering?

The leaves look like Inula but the late flowering suggests Helianthus. 

All my inulas have been over for weeks, it's the perennial helianthus now.

What do you think Dove?
