Help to identify plants please

Hi can anyone help identify these plants please (Or weeds). The one in the pot tends to grow quite tall and has spire like flowers (possibly yellow or purple) late summer. 
The other one I've found today growing in the garden but not sure what it is?

    In the garden Centaurea Montana aka perennial cornflower

    In the pot I think it’s Linaria purpurea

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Yes, I’ll go with that, also cut the dead bits off the Linaria , it will shoot out from the bottom.
