Hi everyone,

I found this growing in a pot and thought I would just leave it to grow. I know it's only small yet and there's just leaves on show - I was just wanting to find out if anyone had any ideas of what it is? Is it just a weed?

Could be salad burnet perhaps..........the edible leaves taste a bit like cucumber.

OTOH, could be a fern of some sort ?

I can't enlarge the photo so a bit difficult to get the full leaf detail.

Looks like Ambrosia artemisiifolia a.k.a. Giant Ragweed, if so, the pollen can cause severe allergies.

I thought the leaves look like an umbellifer, but that covers anything from a carrot to cow pasley.

Could it be a melianthus?

I think it's an umbellifer but can't go further than that except to list many that it isn't
