    It might be a type of poppy.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thank you for the suggestion, @BobTheGardener. I’ll post a photo when it grows a bit more...

    I bought a packet of white wild flower seeds from Wilco and have those growing so whatever they are, they will be white. Had them last year as well but can’t remember. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    That’s good to know, I don’t mind white.

    It has flowered, but has purple flowers. Can anyone help?

    I think that might be Phacelia Tanacetifolia, sometimes called Purple Tansy.

    Flowers don't look quite right.
    I love Phacelia tanacetifolia...up here there are fields of it...glorious carpets of purple flowers.
    It is grown as a green manure crop.
