I think this is a caterpillar, not one but loads. They spread this silk like web at certain times of the year. I do not know what type it is and have not looked on google, but I can recall something like this happening last year locally to me.

Thanks for all your replies. Whatever it is it's growing and has/had roots (I've dug it out ). Will look out to see how quickly it comes back.
