Hi all, garden is overrun with this these seedlings at the moment which I can't identify. Could you help me please? I thought forget me nots but now I'm not so sure. I think these are all the same.

    Probably Myosotis forget me nots , they do self seed around like crazy but I like them 
  • Yes I love them too and even helped them spread this year but some even on top of pots I have so thought might be another plant. Maybe the wind spread those.

    They don't look like forget-me-nots....they have a very smooth outline and are not veined.

    I agree with Ceres not FGMnots , I am not sure what else they could be until they grown more . I do have some verbascum seedling which favour them but I am unsure 
  • Hmm, probably something i won't like then. Will keep an eye on them. I have so so so many nipplewort seedlings also which are mixed in through these. I'd like to keep nice self seeders but very hard to know which to keep  :(

    As you can see, I am overrun  :D excited to see what they become though. Only seed I manually spread were honesty, wallflowers, nigella, forget me nots, canterbury bells, Foxgloves. Closest match seems to be forget me nots so far or a weed :(

    They're not nigella either, but they could be something that's in your compost, or has seeded in from a neighbouring garden, or just from another plant.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • I think I figured it out. I think I spread corn salad seedlings with forget me nots. Very similar flower in my opinion  :/ not sure whether to weed some out now or leave it. Have never tried the leaves before in salads

    They are the corn salad, not forget me nots.
