I found these growing either side of a gate in the UK. Is number 1 an early in season broad leaved dock? What about number 2 is this a curly dock or narrow leaf dock? There seem to be a lot of varieties of dock.

Rumex crispa ..common name curly dock /curled dock has narrower leaves...with wavy, curled edges.

Yes but if you look at number 2 it does have narrower leaves and seems to be slightly more pointed at the end. I think number 1 is broad leaved dock, but still not sure of number 2??
