What is this plant?
My sister has these popping up around her garden (she moved there about 18 months ago), and she wants to get rid of them. My kids' school fair is in a fortnight, & I was going to put them on the plant stall - unless they're a dreadful weed! They're happily sitting in water at the moment. I wondered if they were a type of comfrey - they have hairy (irritating) leaves & stem, but the growth habit looks more 'bushy' than all of the photos I can find [which look more upright, with greater gaps between the leaves]. There are no flowers yet to help identify, & my sister has pulled out all the others before flowering in the past.
