Can you ID seedlings please? Coming up among the ajuga, don't remember sowing them. If it's a weed, then I don't recognise it.

Well Badfish, I've gone through the empty seed packs in the shed, and right enough. an empty pack of Californian Poppy. (A magazine freebie I think). I don't remember putting them in, so I wonder if they actually spilled out of the opened packet ???? Well done, thank you. I wish seed packs had a wee picture of the seedlings on them for identification.

I agree, its Californian Poppy (Escholzia). I have some myself.

If you have an empty packet it will have grown from a dormant seed - they self seed very readily.
