    It’s not dock but if you didn’t plant it then it’s a weed.

  • It looks a bit like honesty to me, the leave get very big.

    Not Honesty.
    Southern trees bear a strange fruit

    Agree with both Lyn and Puncdoc - neither Dock nor Honesty.
    Best pulled out or if you are keen to still try and ID it at a later stage, dig up and pot...... and wait :)
