    This has been in my greenhouse and it was in a pot I’ve either forgotten about or didnt label and now I can’t remember.

    Could be flower or veg.

      No not rough. It must be some sort of seed i had in the greenhouse. I thought id put something in the pot but no idea what it was.

      Could it be a rogue parsnip seed (although I can’t temember last time I sowed them)

        If it's not fresh seed, unlikely to be parsnip. The seed of that doesn't keep well from one year to the next. Anemone?

            It looks very familiar, but I can't put my finger on it. You may have to wait and see what develops.
            I'll pop back if I have Eureka moment!

                    @Marley Farley oh it could be...I had harvested a load of blackcurrents this year - could have fallen in the soil maybe?

                    I guess this will be a case of wait and see.
