    3a
    Delicate white flower. Centre gets bigger as produces seeds (I think). This one self-seeded from somewhere. The next photo is the whole plant.

    No 1. Looks rather like ‘Centaurea cyanus’ aka ‘Cornflower’
    No 4. ‘Leycesteria formosa’ aka ‘Himalayan Honeysuckle’

    I agree with Walt re no.4 :good:
    Could number3 be a form of Michaelmas Daisy, White Wood Aster, or Symphyotrichum ericoides? :rose:

    Could number 2 be some sort of daisy-like sunflower? :rose:

    3a is an aster. If it has black stems it is Lady in Black, but there are lots of different ones. Walt is right on leycesteria, we have self seeded ones.
    No 2 looks familiar but I will have to wait until I’m home or until it grows a bit.
    No 1 could be a cornflower unless those leaves are glaucus?

    Thank you all for looking :good: I thought 3 was an aster of some sort and it certainly looks like one I wanted but was sold out! I will put it in the ground as this appeared in a pot.

    For Leycesteria formosa, would you keep it in a pot where it self-seeded? Not sure what else I could do with it.

    I think I need to wait for the others to grow a bit…

    I’d pop the Leycesteria in the ground Jane, the bees love it and it will seed around. I’ve just saved some seed from my mums bungalow which I’m hoping to sow. ;-)
