Baby tiny antirrhinums

When you can handle them

How tall were they?. What fell apart from what. I have pricked things out at seed leaf stage though when the first true leaves appear is probably better.

If you google 'Lonicera japonica leaf' and look at images you'll see a wide variety of leaf shape. 

I think it's L japonica, it's the most likely one. You may find you get less wavy leaves as the season progresses.

My wild carrots have a much more filigree leaf than that.

I dug up a nigella and the root looks just like yours, somewhat smaller, as was the top, due to some over-enthusiastic weeding in the autumn. What I have now are way behind yours

strictly speaking no. Cultivars,  Munstead Dwarf is a cultivar of L. angustifolia, do not come true from seed.

But unless you want a very regimented row it's not worth worrying about.

I'm going to look for a nigella seedling today, pull it up, see what's down there. The photo doesn't show what I'd call a long root.

Still looks like nigella to me.

Yes, nigella, if they flowered they probably seeded. My money is still on nigella, I think you're right, not larkspur.

No it's not herb robert. I am very familiar with that, it has a bit of a stink,

Carrots smell of carrots

did you get any flowers on the love in a mist in the pot?

Larkspur is another one with similar leaves but not so prolific seeding.

carrots are biennials, if you grew them last year they would flower and seed this year. also when you pulled them up there would be a carrot.
