Does anyone know what this plant is? It just turned up last year, may may have come in with a blueberry bush. 

Any help gratefully rreceived thanks

Isn't it some form of wild lettuce?


edit ... maybe not ... but they are in my garden as well

It is Euphorbia lathyris -  also known as the Mole plant

So that's why I have no moles then.

Some say it deters Moles and others that as the sap is an irritant that can cause burns   It was used to get rid of moles on the skin

I just looked it up to see what Euphorbia lathyris is like (I like some euphorbias) and apparently it seeds madly and very successfully if you let it!
