A colony of bees have taken

Bumble bees don't swarm. Carry on watching and enjoying. Do a bit of research, they're interesting insects

Yes, green alkanet, Pentaglossis sempervirens.

I thought the leaves weren't right to start with, then I realised I was looking at the wrong leaves

Id please :)

The roots would have heat, so much heat that you wouldn't notice the flavour.

But Dove doesn't think it is horseradish.

Got plenty already thanks Dove. C. poscharskyana is rampant for me as well, but portenschlagiana isn't.

Who invents these names?

Horseradish is the plant the sauce comes from. It's a large, perennial, deep rooted.

Loads of assorted radishes out there but this isn't one to chop into your salad. It's hot.

We need a second opinion on this one

Will it be a veg? I see other veg/herbs  in the pic. Is there any taste or smell to the leaves?

They get so mixed up that most of them don't have names Mrs G

McKana are long spurred hybrids as in Bob's picture, there are a lot of different ones.

A. caerulea is a species, very pretty.

The middle one of mine is probably a cross between two species, A. vulgaris and A. viridiflora
