It's hemp, most likely grown from wild bird seed - it's from the same family as marijuana but much less potent.  

Any of the stronger hemp seed used in bird seed is heat treated to prevent germination, so yours is likely to be industrial hemp, used for making fibres for rope and cloth.

Didn't the Victorians use it in their herbaceous borders in all innocence ?

Looks rather a young plant to use that as an excuse tho......sorry, no help at all

Of course KEF....nothing more  To be fair, he also recognised a Foxglove at the GC centre today so I bought it because I was so impressed that he knew what it was

There was a time when almost every fisherman's garden was full of the stuff,after a days fishing it was frowned upon if you threw any unused hemp into the the water so we all took it home and youv guessed the rest ,i think in the end most fishing lakes /rivers banned it. good old days.
