Which plants are these?

I recently bought the Gardeners World offer of 30 perennials for free. There are four types including; Salvia, Echinacea, Geum and Achillea. I’ve received the plugs but I have no idea which is which! Please can anyone help me identify them?

    Bottom left look like the echinacea
    Middle top the geum?

    Bottom middle, probably Salvia.

    I thought the ones on the right might be salvia (unless there's a fifth type?)
    Very poor for them not to be labelled. Often there's a sticker on the outer plastic container for plugs.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained

    Yes I think the top right and top middle are the same. Just the top right are coming along quicker.
  • I’ve just re-read the advert for my order, and realised I missed one off! 🙈 Can anyone identify a Verbena bonariensis ‘Bueno Aires’ please?

    That was a "Gardeners World offer of 30 perennials for free" and you expect to get labels for free too? ;)

    Top row left to right, achillea, geum, verbena. Bottom row echinacea and salvia. I got a similar collection last year and they label the plastic containers they come in.

    Your look larger than the microplugs we were sent but they did have several plants in each plug and we split some up and grew them on.
