    3 poppy probably one of the annual types, but not an opium type.

    4 creeping buttercup - remove spreads quickly.

    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.

    I have no idea about 3 I don't think it's a poppy the leaves do look a little aqualigia like but it's not quite right!!!! Maybe leave it and see... After all a weed is just a plant in the wrong place!!!!

    I like euphorbia but it doesn't go mad selfseeding here. You just have to be careful of the sap if stems are broken as they can really irritate the skin - so if you have a toddler who an get near you are safer to get rid of it for now.

    No 4 is definitely buttercup.  Get it out as soon as possible as we are fighting a losing battle here.

    Looking closely, I think there may be poppies in 2  just to the left of the pink label.

    I made a mistake with the white flowers, they are that dreaded weed that explodes on impact when you pull it out.

    The Euphorbia in the very first photo is Euphorbia helioscopa, Sun Spurge.

    In  the recent set of photos, the top one is Shepherd's Purse, Capsella bursa-pastoris. The middle one is a bitter-cress, you need to count the stamens to be sure which one you have. The bottom one is Creeping Buttercup, Ranunculus repens.

    They are all weeds in the garden, spreading prolifically. Get rid!

    Top, the thing with the white flowers, out

    2nd the white flowered one out and the 2 with the shiny leaves middle left, out

    3, that's the buttercup,, out

    I can see worthwhile annuals in there so have a weed and we'll have another look

  • no 3 is definitely not aquilegia - could be a poppy (not oriental or opium) of the delicate sort
