Def not rocket, leaves too coarse.  As no-one suggested anything edible I dug them all up and composted.  Another of life's little mysteries...  Thanks all

It spreads from the tiniest bit of root, so a glyphosate based weedkiller is the easiest way.  You can dig it out, but you will have to be meticulous about clearing the roots.

Glyphosate kills all plants, so you will have to work around any crops you have in.

Look a bit like a globe artichoke but could be a cardoon ? Better to see the plant in its entirety. Does it die back in the summer to re-appear in the autumn? If it does my guess is artichoke :)

I think this maybe Pellitory Of The Wall, a weed which grows in walls, per the name!
