Bedding plant ID

Could anyone ID these two plants which I've grown from a 'mixed bedding plant' seed pack?  There are no names on the packet and I'm curious as to what they are.  Thanks!

    The pink one’s a Gypsophila I think,  can’t tell the white one,   Could we see a side view of the  flower?

    I think the one on the right is corncockle - Agrostemma githago.
    Gardening in East Suffolk on dry sandy soil.

    The one on the left do you mean @didyw That’s what I thought but would be good to see from the side view, and the buds.

    Corncockle is pink. It's a wildflower rather than a bedding plant. It would be good to see the leaves too.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Thanks for the ID of the gypsophila!  Here are a few more photos of the white one (sorry about the poor picture quality).  It has only two small leaves as you can see in the first photo, which look as if the slugs have got to them...
