This has appeared in my herb patch, bees love it, blue & sometimes pink flowers, sort of furry leaves, quite tall, doesn't smell of anything?!

I think it's borage.

The leaves are edible! I think you can make tea out of them

Borage. Definitely. I pulled about half a ton up this week.

Bees adore borage, I have some in my allotment and it's always covered in bees grin

I think the flowers are also edible and you can put them in Pimms. It self seeds rapidly but I'm rather a fan so I don't mind. As you say, fantastic for bees.

Aw lovely thank you. Yes I rather like it, pretty flowers & I love that the bees are drawn to it 😊
