    Looks like a foxglove - if so it might be a bit late for it to flower this year but having said that it is an odd year for them and I have a few just starting to flower right now.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thanks Bob I have a lovely foxglove next to it in full bloom, about 8 stems. The leaves are slightly different and with it not flowering I thought it was a different plant! Very pleased now as foxgloves as so lovely!  Thanks again! image

    Could be a verbascum? Anyone?

    I think verbascum (mullein) as well.
