some one said it may be himalian balsome

Right now it could be anything... This is the link to the RHS page on Himalayan balsam so once the true leaves are visible if they look like the leaves in the photo then possibly.

If you didn't plant it and you don't want whatever it is weed it out now before it is too late.

If you look at Spritzhenrys recent blog, after the flood in her garden the himalayan balsam seedlings are infesting her garden and she
posted some photo's but as mg says you are best to wait for the true leaves
