Is this some sort of veg plant growing?

    Did you sow seed or plant something in the pot?
    It looks vaguely familiar.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Could they be Hostas?
    The leaves also have a look of an arum maculatum too

    They're so evenly spaced ... looks like something that's been intentionally sown ...

    Hosta seedlings.

    @Pete.8 @Lyn we haven’t planted hosta seeds - lillies, that we’re aware of?
    it is something planted due to the pattern but we don’t recall what @Fairygirl @Dovefromabove

    Here's a patch of arum maculatum (Lords and Ladies) today in my garden -
    It's almost impossible to get rid of it.

    Hi @Pete.8 yes we’ve got lots of that again after getting rid last year. It’s a right pain! 
    The pattern however makes me think it can’t be that and is something deliberately planted… 🤔

    I've been trying to get rid of it for 15 years or more...
    I'm not sure the leaves are quite right for arum maculatum. The veins in the leaves are not the same and I can't think it's something you would have planted to increase your stock of them 😂
    I hope the mystery gets solved

    Oh dear 🙈 @Pete.8
    HAHA 😂 it’s definitely not something we’ve planted to increase stock 😂
    thanks - will leave them and watch the mystery unfold!
