 This is a self sown plant in a newly planted border and I've no idea what it is. Please help.

I'm no expert, but could it be a Primrose. Have you got some nearby?

It looks to me like a verbascum (mullein) - if so it's a biennial so you'll get a flower spike next summer.

I think the leaves are too big,and it has grown too quickly for it to be a primrose.

I would go with Mullien, is it large now, like bigger than a Primrose?, they grow huge, about 5 or 6 ft tall and a couple of feet across.

Any ideas are helpful. It could be a verbascum,I'll keep an eye on it as it's crowding out a lavender.

Gosh, if its crowding out a lavender then I was way out! It's hard to judge size without a comparison to other plants nearby.

I've felt daft on here loads of times - but so have most people - but what does a bit of daftness matter among friends?

Honest mistakes are just honest mistakes ... and the person who never made a mistake never made anything
