Hi, hopefully someone can help...

I've recently moved house and for the first time have my own garden. Theres a plant that's growning really quickly, and I have no idea what it is. Can anyone ID it for me?

Cheers, Mike

It could be a herbaceous sweetpea , Lathyrus?

I'd go with euphorbia as well. My lathyrus vernus has pea like pods for seeds, and different leaf habit. As with all euphorbias, the stems can exude a milky sap which can cause a nasty skin reaction in some people, so handle with care and stout gloves.

Yes, a euphorbia.  And I agree with the warning about the sap - keep if off your skin, especially in bright sunlight.

And the berries are poisonous.
