    It's hemp, most likely grown from wild bird seed - it's from the same family as marijuana but much less potent.  

    Any of the stronger hemp seed used in bird seed is heat treated to prevent germination, so yours is likely to be industrial hemp, used for making fibres for rope and cloth.  

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
