Trying to id this for someone on another forum
Does it have a strong smell?
No idea, I thought it looks like Celery that's going to seed.
I wondered about lovage?
I agree Pansyface - it looks more like lovage than anything else I can think of - but without smelling it I couldn't be sure - and there are some really poisonous plants in the Umbellifers, so I wouldn't recommend tasting it.
Another thought is a parsnip in its second year and running up to flower?
This is the leaf, no real smell to it.
It's goung up to flower but I can't see the top. They're all much the same shape.but we might be able to see white or yellow.
