This plant has made itself at home in one of my pots. I left it to see if any flowers would show but nothing only lots of leaves and it's getting quite big. Wondered if anyone knows what it is?

Please don't try and eat it based on my 'iffy' identification Callie, but my guess would be that it's rocket that's gone to seed and which has picked up some kind of bug infestation (hence the spots). Having said that the stems seem a bit too robust and hairy for rocket. As I said - please don't eat it! (even if my identification was correct, any leafy vegetable that's gone to seed will be bitter and unpalatable).

I don't know what it is, but it isn't rocket.

Callie. Sue will know better than me - listen to her!

The only reason I suggested the rocket was because the leaf shape was right. But I'm sure Sue is correct.

On a separate note. It is extraordinary what can happen to leafy veg when it 'bolts' and 'goes to seed'.

Definitely not Rocket, leaves are too shiny...

If no joy on here, take a cutting and ask a local garden centre or email them, the staff at West Dulwich seem to know their onions...

Good idea to go to a garden centre. I was thinking the glossy leaves were another symptom of the bug infestation causing the spots, and also perhaps a symptom of 'bolting'. But Sue really does know her stuff - so not rocket.

I think they might be gazanias.

Hi everyone. I don't think it's gazanias after having a quick google. Defintely not rocket - which I eat most days in my sarnies smiling smiley Definitely wouldn't eat this plant lol. It seems to be infested by something. Since I've had it this long might as well wait some more for clues ie buds & flowers. Might give it a quick spray with insect killer, feel silly if its a weed though smiling smiley
