Hello. Could anyone tell me what this is next to my China rose and in front of clematis? I didn't plant it but it doesn't look like the usual weeds in the flower bed...
Also, are these something from a bulb or another weed? again it didn't look like the usual suspects..
Next, does anyone recognise this seedling? I put some seeds into pots and forgot about them. It could be one of lemon, apple or orange! But I wasn't sure as it doesn't look like any of these...but my eye is untrained so just checking..
Thanks in advance
top one looks like a tomato

First one could be a tomato plant - have you used any home made compost? I get seedling tomatoes pop up all over the place from homemade compost. At this time of year I treat them as weeds and pull them out.
Second lot are spring bulbs. Possibly muscari. The leaves start to appear in the autumn.
Third is a citrus seedling.

The middle picture is certainly bulbs but what they are I wouldn't like to guess.
The leaves on the fruit seedling are a bit too distorted to identify but if they are smooth and waxy they will be lemon or orange.
Thanks so much everyone. Yes, apologies for the third seedling photo - the leaves were distorted on every photo attempt. But yes they are a little waxi so it must be the citrus seed I put in.
I googled 'muscari shoots' and they do look like those! I've never bought muscari bulbs so this is a mystery. There were a lot of Spanish bluebells around there in the spring. Could they have come accidentally along with those?
As for the tomato - I have never made compost so this is a mystery. I don't even grow veg. I do have a bigger tomato plant on the other side of the garden - this was given to me by a friend. But I don't see how anything from it could have travelled over to the other side! Also it doesn't have any tomatoes on it. If I pick it out and transfer it to the other patch will it grow and give tomatoes?
Never underestimate the ability of birds to plant seeds in your garden. The tomato could have some from anywhere.
