    That looks like a ginormous thistle to me - have you been growing any ornamental thistles?  If not, then it's just a thistle! 

    And it doesn't look like any of the ornamental thistles I can think of - it's a thistle!!!

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

    Hi Dove/Nutcutlet

    ha, no none of these trespassers have been grown deliberately. they are purely the end result of years of neglect of the area at my dads house - which i am now back at temporarily - and while here throught id sort it all out.

    that area it came from was the only one there was. hard to dig up as it was bang smack up against a gravel board with fence above it. the rest of the area contained literally, im not joking, about 65 dandelions. and some of those had a taproot easily a foot long, probably over!
