Thanks, AKA Lords and Ladies and according to the RHS website should not flower until Autumn which aligns with the thread on the chat board that is say it feels like Autumn.

Not sure if this is a weed or not - no others appear to be growing nearby and have a nagging memory of seeing something similar with red tipped leaves that was some form of  Asian or Caribbean greens?

Anyone recognise it?

I have heard of something called callaloo, which is related to the amaranth plant, but I've no real idea if this is what the picture shows.  I'm sure someone on this site will be able to enlighten you.

The leaves remind me a bit of Thorn Apple (aka Datura) do check it out because if it is that it's a poisonous plant..
Hopefully I'm wrong.

Thank you Lesley & Aunty - I think red goosefoot most likely from the way flower buds are forming, but IĎll heed Lesleyís warning and wait for the flowers to come out to be sure. 

From what Iíve now read about goosefoot, like other greens once it bolts the leaves turn bitter so it wonít be a useful leaf crop now, if thatís what it is.  I got excited that the seeds can be harvested as wild quinoa, but the difficult extraction process hardly seems worthwhile.  Interestingly the seeds are also said to contain a lot of saponins though, so if it turns out to be this maybe a home made soap or cleanser might be possible  :)

Thank you again for responding.

This thing crops up everywhere on my plot and, left to its own devices, will blanket entire beds. It's prone to some kind of rust, too. You can't see very clearly in this picture but it gets bright - almost neon - orange spots on its leaves. Any ideas?

Itís groundsel - Senecio vulgaris if you want the proper name and yes it self seeds everywhere.  Very prone to rust as you say.
