Chris I'm sure that is common hog weed

we get it in the lanes round here

it grows  quite tall - also known as Heracleum sphondylium, cow parsnip, common hogweed.
 
 A common and much less troublesome
 relative of giant hogweed

well, if its in the wrong place get rid of it, I've seen something similar to this and it spread everywhere. Does it have a long tap root?

Looks a bit like horse radish. Scrape a bit of root and see if it smells like it. It can be an invasive weed.

I would be good if it was horseradish or wasabi as it seems to be called all of a sudden.  I haven't got any of that.  But where would it have come from? I grew squashes there last year and it was a new hugelkultur bed before that.

Have to say it looks very like the horseradish pointed out to me today at the church plot by someone who had planted it, and about the same size.  It is very distinctive how some leaves have those very wavy edges, and others not, even on the same plant.

The mystery deepens!
I have found some more in my garden at home.  So it is obviously a plant that I have put in last year, but I have no recollection of what it might be.  The only one I can remember is scabious, but these leaves don't look right for that. 
So I will just have to wait and see what comes up. :unsure:

:D :D  I just discovered that myself recently!  Not that I like either of them, but my family do..


I'm surprised nobody has come up with a definite id for the plant, though. 
 Perhaps I have beaten the panel :D :D

Hi. Anyone know what this is? Seem to have a lot of it around and I didn't notice it last year. I quite like the flowers so if it's not a bother will likely leave it around the edges of the plot.
