Wildflower seed mix

I don't often buy seed mixes as I generally like to know what I'm dealing with. However it was an impulse purchase, so rather than waste them, I thought I'd try to ID some first before sowing. And extra gardening brains will likely shorten the process. Any ideas what some might be?

    Maybe the big striped ones are fennel.

    Curly ones will be Calendula,   I’ve bought those before,  I sow them all together in a tray and then identify by the leaves when they’re grown on a bit, 2nd sets of leaves.

    OK thank you Lyn. I've got a large trough-style planter so think I'll sow them in there. I've got a feeling Phacelia is going to be there somewhere, it usually is.

    The ones with the ribs could be Astrantia, wild type.
