What weed is this please?

Should I continue to grow this on? Is there any benefit to birds or pollinators? Or get rid?

    I think it's a dock, looks as though it will seed all over the place before long.
    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • To me it looks like a type of doc leaf with seeds starting to mature. I read somewhere that one doc leaf plant can produce 10,000 seeds and they develop a strong tap root like a parsnip that becomes more difficult to dig out the older they get. I'd be inclined to dig it out straight away and be careful to dispose of the seed head so it doesn't spread the seed.

    Happy gardening!
