In preparation for some serious weeding this weekend, please can anyone tell me what these are?

Sprung up next to my hosta and forget me nots ...



 Apologies for the slug pellets

    No idea what this is either... Thingy with reddish orange top

    And finally, in the centre and right hand side of last year's hanging basket (which has sadly been neglected over the winter).


     Thanks in advance image

    1. A type of fern, possibly something good, so keep it.

    2. Definite weed, remove all of it

    3. Tree seedlings of some kind, possibly a willow variety.

    The one with the reddish orange tip looks like sorrel

    and I think the willow is Salix caprea

    I would say Nut is correct with the weed. I would take everything out of the container and plant the little variagated shrub in the ground, or at at least a big pot to itself.

    Edited to add, you really only need about 4 or 5 grains of slug pellets to do the trick around each hosta.

    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Thanks Lyn, this is the first time I have ever grown hostas. I got worried as I found lots of little chomp marks when they started emerging image
