WELL, FOR A START, A WILD FLOWER IS A WEED IF IT IS UNWANTED. SO WHETHER THEY ARE WILD FLOWERS OR WEEDS IS UP TO YOU.
THE FIRST, I HAVE NO IDEA.
THE SECOND IS PURPLE DEADNETTLE.
THE THIRD IS FAT HEN. VERY VERY PROLIFIC IN THE SEED DEPARTMENT.
All those are wildflowers. A weed is just something in the wrong place - but still a flower. The middle one is one of the dead nettles but the other two will need someone with more knowledge than I have to help you identify them
Thanks good to know!
Most wild flowers attract bees and other insects, so if you have the space for a wild area not only your garden but the rest of the local wildlife will also benefit from them. We only have a 3 metre square raised bed planted up with wild plant seeds and get far more bees in this small area than in the rest of the garden - apart from the veg. patch. One of the nice things about a packet of mixed wild seeds is that you never know what is going to grow, we have had plenty of surprise plants, and most of them reseed next year too.
I think the first one is corncockle.
THIS IS CORNCOCKLE.
I'll take another pic when it flowers..probably be easier to classify then
I think the first one is one of the linums. Possibly that nice red one that gets put in the mixes.
Can't remember its name for the minute, it will come to me
it already has, Linum grandiflorum
gallerchick, I am so impressed with the examples of wildflowers in your mix so could you please let me know where you got your seeds from?
