Sowed loads of ols seeds out of my seed tin. I was pretty sure they were nasturtiums ( something to do with India), but they don't look right. Can anyone tell me what they might be?

Ps have you noticed what predictive text makes of nasturtium😳?

    Malva family is all I can say at this stage.

    Out of interest @B3 , how old are those particular seeds?  I think many in this family have a very long seed viability.

    They arent old. I got them this year and forgot about them.
     Most of my other seeds are pretty old and have germinated. That's probably why I didn't recognise the mallow. No sign of thunbergia though and I particularly wanted them

    I'm relying on old runner beans this year as I went a bit silly with my bean seed shopping and have all sorts of interesting legumey things but forgot to order runners!  I accidentally left the seed I kept from last year's crop outside sandwiched between 2 seed trays so that rotted and am now down to remains of old packets from up to 10 years ago..

    It's worth trying. You can reuse the compost for something else if they dont grow
