This is my first year in my new home and I only have a small strip of garden, there are many bulbs shooting up but there is one plant that I don't know if it is a weed or something worth keeping. Please can you help identify it.
The leaves are covered in tiny hairs.

A guess, could it be forget me nots or centaurea montana?

It looks like forget me nots to me - Myosotis. I would have it out as a weed, but some people like it. It can take up a lot of space and it seeds about if you don't get it quickly after the flowers fade. And it's prone to mildew in the damp - so you get a lot of leaf, some small blue flowers and a messy plant that has the potential to overwhelm other things you really want.

Thanks for your answer as it confirms what others have said. I will see what it looks like but will certainly take note of your observation about potential to overwhelm other plants and take it out if it looks to messy.
