I have a few - some I'm sure the old owner planted and some I'm sure are weeds. But I'm so new to gardening I want to be really sure before I dig up something lovely! Any help much appreciated

These first 3 I think are supposed to be there

These next two I think are weeds - both coming up in the bed...

All weeds.

1, 3 are just a sort of grass, 2, not sure but it's a weed

4= bramble

5- if it's the one to the left = a willowherb= weed. The strappy one on the right MIGHT be an iris

I think they are all weeds too!

In the first set of three the first one is clearly a grassy thing (expert? moi?) which might be something nice and decorative but might just be a happy bit of grass. The weedy version of the same thing I'd get rid of anyway. The one with the blue-grey bigger leaves is poppy, could be really pretty.

The second set of two is a bramble then a weed.

1 looks like a tulip that's giving up
2 don't know but a bit like one of those fleshy poppies
3 I think is grain from a bird food that has germinated
4 bramble
5 weed with iris or sisyrinchium behind

1. confused by this, could be grass, could be a tulip, hard to get scale.
2.Opium poppy. (v pretty)
3. Some sort of grass, could be ornamental.
4. Bramble.
5. Iris.

oh yes, now PP have said opium poppy, could well be - look out for flowers

A quick update - the grasses were indeed weeds (gave it another week to be sure and they grew like nobody's business in the meantime). The suspected opium poppy now has about 20 huge buds. I'm really excited to see what blooms!
