close up of strange water bowls formed by the leaves. It's probably a weed but i've not seen anything like it before.

Teasel?

Reply from Fi

From the water bowls, and what look like prickly spines on the back of the leaves I wonder if it's a teasel. Grows to about 4 ft+ with large thistle heads, which once seeded birds and insects love, finches especially.
Let us know how it turns out - worth keeping just for the insect swimming pools!
