I grew some sunflower seeds indoors and one of the seedlings grew into this plant. I have no idea what it is or how it grew in my kitchen, some sort of wildflower may be??

Kill it!

It is a terrible weed and highly allergenic. Let's hope it doesn't establish in the UK. Cornwall might be warm enough for it to do so.

oh no! i wonder how it managed to germinate from an asda sunflower seed pack?

ah i think i see

i found this on a campaign against ragweed site "In Europe, Ragweed has become quite common as a weed in fields of sunflower crops." that probably explains it :)
