Intruders what do you think they are?

Little mystery. I have a nice tray of snapdragon seedlings and what look like a few intruders. Any ideas what they look like?

    I would say those are Morning glory seedlings.  Did you accidentally plant 2 things in the same modules?

    Last year I had baby persicaria of the weedling variety in nearly all my seed trays and pots.  French compost makers don't seem to manage the temperatures needed to sterilise unwanted guest seeds.

    Hmm don’t think so but I did plant MGs in another tray, all of which came up and are already much bigger than these. I think I’ll try to prick them out into new pots and see what happens. :*

    Bindweed is the same family.   Just saying.

    Definitely putting them into separate pots if there is a chance they could be bind weed!

    I’ve just germinated a mixed pack of white wild flower seeds, bought the same last year from Wilco, (and they were gorgeous). But my tray has this in as well, they’re weren’t bind bind last year! Can’t think what off hand but will leave them and see.
