I can'r see from your pic but

With carrots, all those very divided leaves come individually from the base of the plant. So at the base there are apparently several stems, you know what the top of a carrot looks like.

Nigella will have one stem with the leaves coming off that.

Antirrhinums are minute aren't they?

I always sow too thickly and have occasionally  pricked these out in little clumps and thinned them later

Hello, I hadn't realised you were new til I saw your other thread.

Welcome to the forum

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

Jenny (OP) has never come back on this one but, if you're there Jenny, new photos of the first batch would help

Growing a new lavendar

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.
