    Default Seedling ID - knautia macedonica?

    I started lots of seeds in trays late last summer to get a head start with potting on and some stronger plants for this year.
    I've got a couple of trays with no label - they've obviously not done that well, just a few seedlings starting to put on some growth. They all have prop lids on but in amongst some weeds I have a few strong seedlings.
    I wanted more knautia, so I am hoping these are them. My garden ones haven't started yet and I really can't remember what I put in there...weeds or something nice?

    It looks very familiar. But I don’t actually know what it is.

    Same here - that's why I thought it could be a weed.

    # last year I nurtured some ground elder in pots!!

    It looks prickly like borage,i would have it down as a flower of some sort,not a weed.

    Scarlet, is it some type of primula?

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,

    I get why you think that -It does look like one but this is much to small - maybe 3inches at the most.
