Here I'd say #1 is lavatera trimestris. And #2 is an herb - maybe myrrhis odorata (sweet cicily)... or it could be chervil or corriander.

Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants, if #2 is an herb, I have been using it as cut flower! LOL

I'll post a list of all the seeds in the mixture.

Tim I don't think your #2 plant is on that list. It definitely in the Apiaceae (umbelliferae) family and your grandmother could very well be right with Queen Anne's Lace. It grows as a weed here and it may have just popped up in your soil. Look at the images below and see what you think -

This is ammi majus (Bishop's Weed) - an annual relative of Queen Anne's lace that is often grown for cutting

And Yes - your #1 flower is most likely the tree mallow

I think amni majus--false Queen Anne's lace.

#2 leaves and flowers are similar to ammi majus, so I guess it's Bishop's weed.

Thanks everyone!!!
