HI Can anyone please id this plant. It along with 4 others have grown in my garden since I had a bird table in there last winter. It is a very strong plant, with hairs on its stem and prickles under its leaves, it is just about to flower, and has masses of buds waiting to burst open. It is really bugging me, as I can find nothing that resembles it. It could be a weed I suppose. Hoping someone can enlighten me Many thanks

Hi Azshara. Have you got a photo or more of a description of the flower?

03/07/2013 at 10:45
I have but I cannot get it on this post for some reason.

Are you posting through you phone, as I've never been able to upload a photo if it's on the "Mobile" version of the site.

No, on my pc.
When I first opened the post, there was the bar above it with the attachment icon, but when I signed in and went back to my post, that bar as disappeared.
So I cannot attach a photo to this post now.

You could try closing down your browser and then opening it up again - this simply solution often sorts out gremlins.

MIght be worth trying a new post to this thread and see if the tree icon is there then. I can't see the tree icon on my previous posts only the one that I'm writing.......hope that makes sense

Thanks everyone for your advise, I tried everything to get the photo posted.

But anyway I have found out what the plant is....it is Borage.(Starflower).

You see lots of fields covered with blue flowers around here, so I asked a farmer.

Get someone to check it out .I read a story in a magazine one time about a lady who had a gigantic plant grow from seed that had fallen from a bird feeder,she had come up in a rash after being near it , it turned out to be a very piosonous species from the tropics.be on the safe side and get your findings confirmed

Or then there was the very handsome plant that grew under the bird feeder in our Social Services offices n(ot open to the public I might add) -  no one seemed to recognise it growing there, so I left it, waiting for it to be spotted - it got to about 3ft tall and probably worth a great deal 'on the street'  before the groundsmen came and strimmed it down - maybe more social services staff should've gone to art school like what I did
