I have sown Anchusa (alkanet) seeds along with Echium vulgare ones (fool me!),

and this seedling is a bit different from Echium. Is it an Anchusa? Thank you!

They'd have to grow on a bit before I'd be able to tell and a few more photos from different angles. Is this green alkanet ? and which echium?

No it isn´t green alkanet, rather Anchusa azurea. 

The Echium vulgare is the "Blue Bedder" one (see pic).

Sorry rus, I'm not familiar with either of these but imagine the annual blue bedder will be ahead of A. azurea, which Is a perennial
