I wonder what this is? A 5' - 6' arrival in my wild bed. Sorry the photo of the leaves is a bit blurred - the slightly ferny looking leaf in the bottom-left quarter is probably the clearest. Thanks for any ideas!

Looks like one of the cow parsley related plants. Perhaps not something you want as it will choke out the rest of your wild flowers.

Thanks Urbanite . . . yes it could be related to cow parsley as there's plenty of that in the wild patch. I've added a third photo to show the difference in the leaves: this new one is certainly a giant.

Angelica also crossed my mind until you posted a picture of the leaves.
Take a look at to see if anything jumps out at you!

Thanks again Urbanite . . . a great website. So many of the plants look like mine, but I'm opting for Daucus carrota as I did sow some seed there last year, but expected it to be smaller and more delicate.
