See photo- is this a lovely plant or nettle?

No it's a nuisance wild flower that has a purple spike flower, a bit like sage. Some may like it, but to me it's has an awful smell. I'll see if I can google the name.

I think it's called marsh woundwort. I could be wrong, either way I'd pull it out!

interesting plant, woundwort.

But a swine in the garden, so I'd whip it out.

It's not Alkanet

It looks like white deadnettle to me, although it could also be woundwort.
It's a spreader anyway, get rid.

no, not alkanet now I'm looking on decent screen not tiny phone! Nettle I reckon. Alkanet is bane of my garden though!
