Plant ID challenge

Hi all!

Here’s a challenge for you. Can anyone identify what is growing in these random pots that were left by previous tenants:

What should be kept and what should go?!

    1) weeds and a fern. I would remove the weeds and top dress the fern, water with some feed in it.

    2) that looks like another weed. Remove it as it will be taking water and nutrients from your plant.

    On a closer look I wonder if the fern is just a self seeded bonus and the long bits sticking out are part of the original plant, whatever that is.

    The fern could also be bracken, which you don't want. I'm not sure how to tell, though.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
