Errr! Snails like it LOL

looks like a verbascum

but which variety ?

Looks like a Nicotiana Sylvestris to me. Snails and slugs love it but if you can isolate it the flowers are strongly scented which draw moths, butterflies and bees.
Are the leaves and stem slightly sticky to the touch? If not then it's something different.

Which photo has the correct colour? The first one I thought looked like a verbascum too but I've not grown the nicotiana. Flowering will decide!

Wonder what I meant by isolate? I don't think that's what I intended!

I think you meant to keep away from the slugs and snails thats how I read it

Top One is the colour :o)
No! Not sticky to the touch :o))

I'll go for Verbascum if the top one is right. Time will tell...

Not sticky, then it isn't Nicotiana.

Its soft to the touch :o)

Arbuthnot. The leaves are now have a sticky feeling to them, so I think you are right about the name of them "Nicotiana" :o))
Well Done LOL
