This plant is growing like crazy in the garden ... but I can't find out what it is :

Nicotiana (sp?) A smaller and pretty version of tobacco. Save the little black seeds to spread them about, they come in yellow, white, pink and mauve.

Grows quickly too and self seeds. I had loads when we were in the UK but haven't come across any here yet. Can't be looking hard enough

I would have said Nicotiana too "tobacco plant". It should have a pleasant perfume in the evenings. If not, maybe it's an uncultivated version.

Pretty though! :)

Aaaah ..... thank you wise ones ^:)^
I've heard of Nicotiana but didn't know what it looked like. There's a mass of it where I took the photo and it has popped up in other areas of the garden.

The house was a secondaire for 10 years and there are areas of the garden where everything has grown into everything : agapanthus, nicotiana and big daisies all muddled together .... plus the dreaded hawthorn (or blackthorn), most of which I have managed to dig up. It's been a particular nuisance as it has grown up in the middle of flowers. I tackled most of it earlier in the year, but didn't quite catch all of it.

We have masses of the magenta-coloured variety. The first few were kindly planted by a well-meaning neighbour, and they've since self-seeded. The flowers tend to open towards the end of the day, and are strongly scented. They require little or no maintenance, and seem able to grow almost anywhere. In a garden where just about everything else is a weed or a cherry tree, think we're happy to have them!

Hawthorn is May
Blackthorn is Sloe

Not the same thing.

Thank you, thelastoneout - no berries or flowers, but from the leaf shape, it's blackthorn that's plaguing us. Loads of sloes in the hedgerows already though :-bd

Thanks to all for the replies from me too.
I've seen a lot of that plant here, though not in our 'garden'. I always wondered what it was.
