How can you tell?

Please could you explain how you identify this just from the seed leaves? I'm intrigued!

No secret formula

I was always curious, as I can tell you are :)this is a good thing. I tend to have certain areas that I visit almost daily, certainly weekly, so that I have seen these for more years than I can remember and yes there are more every year. They also stand out due to size, shape and of course vigour, so I hope I have not disappointed you my only advice is visit in every season.

Seedlings

Good advice, masses of seedlings always intrigue but I don't always get back to see what they turn into!
