    4. could be an Allium schoenoprasum... but you have to taste it...
    5. looks like Saxifraga sp. (S. x urbium?)

    Chiastophyllum has leaves in pairs not in rosettes. Would need to see the plant in bloom. There are many different plants that have rosettes like that.

    #10 definitely is not Kalanchoe blossfeldiana nor any of the complex garden hybrids derived from it. They have leaves in pairs, the mystery plant definitely have leaves spirally arranged in rosettes. No species of Kalanchoe would be cold hardy in London. The plant looks somewhat like a Lewisia cotyledon hybrid but cannot be sure until it blooms.

    You're right- it could be Lewisia cotyledon.

    I'm not seeing a Chiastophyllum or Lewisia. There is a picture of a Saxifraga hirsuta or S. x urbium type, something I mentioned on the other thread - along with the fact that the purple-leaved violet is properly V. riviniana 'Purpurea'. V. labradorica is a tiny violet from the far north, perhaps not in cultivation.
