Hi everyone,

I found this growing in a pot and thought I would just leave it to grow. I know it's only small yet and there's just leaves on show - I was just wanting to find out if anyone had any ideas of what it is? Is it just a weed?

    Looks like Ambrosia artemisiifolia a.k.a. Giant Ragweed, if so, the pollen can cause severe allergies.

    I thought the leaves look like an umbellifer, but that covers anything from a carrot to cow pasley.

    Could it be a melianthus?

    I think it's an umbellifer but can't go further than that except to list many that it isn'timage
