Well done Kitty
I'd better get some photos taken
I don't think they like it too limey either.
Agree on 1.
The last looks like one of the willowherbs.
The insignificant flowers makes me think it might be Iris foetidissima variegata. You can pull off any leaves than look rough, split the plant as well. I don't grow the variegated one, mine are the plain green. The leaves look really bad after a while and I discard them as there are always seedling. This won't work with a variegated plant, it won't seed true. You don't mention seeds which are the glory of the plant.
I assume the variegated one is the same
I'd need to see a photo to ID it. There are so many different types of iris
What colour are the flowers and what are the seedpods/seeds like?
No, go on, do Kitty
They're biennial but I think if you can find plants NOW, they will flower this year. Those for planting in autumn will flower next year.
My first impression was radish as well Lyn. But I don't think they have hairy stems do they? I haven't grown them for years and can't remember
I think anything that tall from a mothers day sowing is an annual
