    Could be Burdock(s), images of the stems and underside of leaves would help.

      I took those as coming from the plant with smaller leaves in the top left hand corner, (between the willow herb and nettle).

      Pics of a burdock of about the size in above image (that will flower next year).

        It certainly does look like Burdock, no idea where it came from, but it's really invasive. I'm presuming it's not toxic? It's quite hard to get out, the roots must be strong. By the way the dead white flowers are a spent rose next to itburdock.jpg
