Seedlings friend or foe?

Long shot but does anyone know what these seedlings are ? At first I thought they might be a weed but now I've looked at the remains of the seed I think I recognise them from one of my plants last year . I had a whole host of unidentified plants in that area of the garden last year mostly yellow flowers and possibly some sort of daisy . The seedlings do look like sunflowers but I don't think the cases do. Any ideas?

    can you photograph the seedlings in situ?

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • They look like Marigold.

    The seeds in the top left of the picture look like marigold Calendula officinalis.  Don't know about the other seed.  The first two leaves of a seedling are always a very simple shape and look pretty much like every seedling.  If you can show us a seedling that has some true leaves, we'll have much idea.
  • Strong possibility they are marigolds  thanks
  • Sorry don't know why photo of them in situ is so small, will try again but I do think those who said marigold are right so will leave them be
