Name that plant?

I'd go with Salvia but which cultivar? There rather a lot

Most likely mozzies in the evening.

Why do you think they can't be mozzies Lou?

clumps I reckon and not small ones. You'll lose too many if you try individuals. and they'll look spindly, they will be individually skinny now but they look like a generous clump all together.

Small pansy?

Indeed they will grow tall and skinny in the competition for light. The transplant will have set the moved ones back as well

They may sulk when you move them, poppies for one (I think I can see poppies there) do not like disturbance. 

Wild flower seeds

There are hundreds of wildflowers that grow in shade, but not the type that grow in grass meadows or the bright coloured annual mixes.

Grass generally doesn't do well in full shade though a few species will. Not wild in this country but Millium effusum 'Aureum' will brighten up a dark corner and Anemathele lessoniana does well in shade. Both easy from seed.

Primroses, foxgloves and red campion do well, Greater and Lesser Celandine at different times of year. Nettle leaved Bellflower, later flowering than most shade plants. Snowdrops, they grow wild here, good for very early flowers.
