Found this growing in my potted plant??

Hi guys,

I bought a campanula in a 9cm pot and I found this growing right next to it in the same pot.

Is it a weed??

Thanks :)

    Looks a bit like a dandelion.

    Well, it's not a campanula so, given that a weed is a plant in the wrong place yes, it's a weed. 

    Possible dandelion family, or one of the sow thistles ....... or possibly even a brassica like a broccoli ... image

    Hmmm yea I thought something like that. I tried to take it out very carefully but the very bottom of the root snapped off so I'm sure will regrow. I couldn't get at it due to it being so close to the other plant. I may have to wait until the campanula establishes more before I go digging down into the compost.
