Weed identification

Hi everyone! Could anyone possibly identify these seedlings please? My son has prepared a seed bed and put some wild flower seeds down, however even though they are now coming through, the ground is covered in these seedlings!!! Any clue??

    Look like sunflower seedlings.

    What flowers are in the mix and what was growing there before ... that’ll give us a few clues ... hopefully 🤞

    There are Love in a mist, sunflowers, zinnias and poppies but only a small amount of them tbh.....I don’t know what was there before but these little darlings just came up like cress!!!!

    We’ll probably have to wait a bit longer for a few more clues ... 🌱
