Are any of these worth saving?

    1.  vetch
    2.  willowherb
    3.  another vetch
    4.  possibly a type of deadnettle?
    5.  a sedum of some sort ... I'd pot that up and grow it on.  Gritty freedraining mix.
    6.  maybe chickweed or possibly scarlet pimpernel https://www.ediblewildfood.com/scarlet-pimpernel.aspx
    7.  another vetch?

    5. Looks like a cerinthe to me. I'd save that one and bin the rest

    I agree with @Dovefromabove but think 5 may possibly be a Euphorbia peplus (Petty spurge) seedling, if it is small and that's a close-up.  Worth potting-on though to check. :)

    I wondered about Petty Spurge too @BobTheGardener, but then saw the slightly toothed edges to the leaves ... even then I'm not 100%

    Well spotted - I missed the toothed edge, so you could well be right @Dovefromabove :)

    The toothed edges are also a reason I discounted Cerinthe @Gearóid ... I’ve checked with my cerinthe seedlings which definitely don’t have a toothed edge

    @Dovefromabove @BobTheGardener number 5 - lovely, there’s a couple in there with the peas I’ve tried growing… I’ll save them and pot them on and get rid of the rest 😊 thanks both 👍
