this plant has grown vigorously over the last few weeks, it is now about 3ft tall, the leaves are slightly rough, no sign of any flowers yet, the leaves have no smell, any ideas as to what it is please?

    It looks like Green Alkanet.

    could be one of the perennial helianthus. Mine are at about that stage now.

    it doesn't look like my green alkanetimage

    This is something late flowering, still a bit of height to put on I should think

    Thanks for the quick reply guys, it's the first time I have used this site and I am a very novice gardener so I am sure i will be asking lots more questions! I just looked up photos of the 2 suggested plants and next door have large swathes of yellow flowers in summer that could be helianthus so it could be that, I will update you when I know for sure.
