Watching seedlings grow

I agree Gemma. It's a much repeated fiction that wild flowers 'need' poor soil.

Maybe it relates to growing plants in grass where the grass gets too exuberant in good soil and swamps the other plants.

and I was disappointed to find none of the wild flower mixes at the local GC were native mixes

I should think they will Lucid. Over-enthusiasm is more likely to be a problem, depending on which one you've got

Agapanthus

Of agapanthus I can't say.  But the answer to your question generally is no. Cultivated varieties of plants will produce offspring closer to the original species every time they seed.

You can add a few bulbs, some of the species tulips or crocus.

 

eryngium

I'd rehydrate it and pot it up and wait till it looks like a plant before putting it in the ground. The roots need to be completely under the compost but the growing tip at or near the top.

Don't cover it, when the leaves appear they need light.
