Plant ID please.

This plant is growing very well in my garden at the moment but I have no idea what it is - does anyone know? Many thanks.

Garlic mustard, a wild plant of the hedgerows. It will grow well and spread practically anywhere!

Many thanks for all of your responses.

The recipies look very interesting and so I may give some of them aog and may even try it on some toast.

I'm happy to keep the plant (so long as it doesn't spread too much) as I like the light green colour of the leaves!

It matures very quickly and will spread like wildfire, Littlet. I treat it as a weed in my garden, pulled it out from the very narrow space between my greenhouse and concrete path only this morning.
