My sister and I recently got an allotment. We had to clear a lot and have just started to plant things. This plant has started growing and we are not sure what it is. Don't really want to clear it till we know what it is. Can anyone help please?

Pretty sure it's a weed. I have them on my allotment and I just pull them out.

Unless someone on here enlightens my otherwise!

That is spurge, a wild euphorbia.

Thanks I shall dig it out next time I'm down

You won't need to dig just pull it up. Euphorbia sap can be an irritant to some people so wear gloves ( is the rule, but I never have)

I pull them up too.

I used to pull them up but now am hoping to find some in my random collection of pots that 'might have something nice that will come up' as it makes good ground cover.
