Earlier in the year I ordered loads of lovely seeds to attract ladybirds etc I read all about how 2 prepare the soil n I added the seeds to sand in a lttle tray ready to sprinkle n then spotted a weed I needed to pull so put the tray down n a big gust of wind came n blew the tray away. anyway looks like a couple of the seeds landed where they were meant to. I havent a clue when it comes to plants, can anybody tell me whats taken.

Hi

The first is deffo a poppy, but to me the third one looks like a daisy of some type not a sunflower, the leaves look wrong.

Do you have any of the packet names to narrow them down a bit?

First one looks like the common field poppy, the next two look like possibly rudbeckia flowers, but will be easier to tell when their flowers are open, the fourth one is a larger poppy cultivar & the last one looks like field scabious.

Number two looks to be a form of pot marigold (Calendula)

First is a cultivated Poppy, second and third are Marigolds, fourth is Opium Poppy.
The fifth could be Phacelia tanacetifolia but not 100% sure as there's another similar plant that I can't remember the name of .....
