Any idea what these are please? Single stems have popped up (to almost a metre) seemingly from nowhere!

    No idea I'm afraid but I have an unidentified of my own if you don't mind me adding to your thread?

    @Mokles - better to start your own thread and post a photo.

    @anthonyhorne1 - can you post a single photo and a bit bigger?   I tried to enlarge yours but it just went fuzzy.

    Posted about this one a while back - this is it today. Any clues? The stems are pretty long - now about 6ft - and blowing around in the wind. Pretty sure it isn’t meant to be there, just wondering what it is

    A self-seeded young tree, maybe sycamore, or Norway maple. If left it will become a large tree so unless your garden is large and it's in a suitable place, it would be best to take it out (including the roots) as soon as you can before it gets bigger and harder to remove.
