Just restarted gardening as my hobby. Hoping to turn the front garden which is in the town Centre into something special. Help may be required.

I've just been reading up about them Joan, I always call mine brunnera but when you log them on the app it comes up as perennial forget me not. A bit confusing for everyone. Apparently according to Alan titchmarsh there a cousin to the ordinary forget me not 🤔 nice plant though what ever you want to call it. @joanboston
