I was given this at the Chelsea flower show in a mixed pack of bee and bird attracting seeds from homebase. Hope someone knows the name of this beauty Anchusa is the closest I got but I'm not 100% if I am correct.

Thanks in advance

The flowers remind me of Pentaglottis sempervirens (Green Alkanet), not sure about the leaves though..

It reminds me of Anchusa officinalis (True Alkanet). Definitely in the Borage family, anyway!

My first thought also was that it looks like a variety of Forget-Me-Not.
Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis sylvatica) is a native wildflower of Britain.

Water Forget-Me-Not (Myosotis scorpioides)
