Big leaves so would rule out  both privet and philadelphus.

No.  I find that once the flowering shoot has gone up from the basal rosette of leaves, it makes no difference. They are not repeat flowerers.

Daniel has posted but doesn't tell us anything other than it was a "cooling off period"

We still don't know what was the problem. If we don't know, I suppose any of us could be in the same position.

Please can anyone identify this plant ?

I'm thinking it looks more like a privet that is about to flower, and the smell is not good.

The bottom one look like Eryngium gigantium first year Next year they will turn prickly and start shooting up.

Both sort of leaves in the photo.

Bought some seeds from IKEA

The first two are brassicas, the last is amaranth. They are used as cut and come again leaves for stirfrys or salads.

Sow thinly on a seed tray full of multipurpose compost. Water and they will germinate in a few days. After about three weeks, cut individual leaves off to use.

Help! What is this plant please
