found growing in a patio pot and curious to know what it is. The thistle like growths are very strong and sharp?







Hi Betty   Could you take a photo and upload it here?  If you click on the little picture of the tree in the toolbar above where you type the instructions are there. 

Let's guess ... what has a roundish spiny seedpod? Teasel, thornapple or, possibly, chestnut.



My money is on thornapple. It's a plant that's turned up uninvited in pots for me. I've always thought it came in with the compost.

A photo would confirm or not
