Hi Madlen,
I don't know about P8, but in P1 you should have starch, nuclei and  
cell debris and in P12 you should have mitochondria, some plastids and  
peroxisomes. Obviously each fraction is contaminated with all other  
organelles, its just that each fraction should be enriched with the  
organelles you look for. If you need to isolate a particular organelle  
such as mitochondria you should spin the P12 in a density gradient  
such as percoll.
Hope this helps a bit and good luck
