    Hi
    It looks a bit like nigella to me ( love in a mist ) but don't take my word for it :snorky: I'm sure someone else will know for sure :blue thumb:
    Looking again I'm wondering if it's carrots :scratch:

        Thanks for your suggestion, but the leaves smell of nothing.

        Looks nigellaish to me, definitely doesn't look like carrot anymore. I guess you'll know for sure in a few weeks :blue thumb:
