Its seems to have a different leaf to solidago or Golden rain (yellow flower) as I call it. It looks like flax to me. If its got blue flowers.

I hope I am wrong... but.....
It looks very much like Chamaenerion angustifolium.
Commonly called Rosebay willow herb.

I would like to see a new pic showing the flowers when they appear.

Do you know I think you might be right. We used to call it the bombsite flower as it sprung up from nowhere

I think solidago because its growing in a herbaceous border note there are no other weeds around and it looks like it has been planted on purpose.

Looks like rosebay willow herb to me. It spread into my garden last year, the roots growing under the fence from a bank above the county road. Now it has seeded elsewhere in the garden. I'm relying on Roundup to eliminate it.

I could be wrong.

Pink flower buds rule out Solidago.
Flowers are yellow.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=Solidago&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=Rx28UeTgEoaZPciOgfgE&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=997&bih=456

Flax has blue flowers so can also be ruled out.
Flax leaves very thin and narrow.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=linum+usitatissimum&rls=com.microsoft:en-US&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=yB28UdvGDcSZPZ7OgdAL&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=997&bih=456


Not Phlox either.

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=phlox+paniculata&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=uBy8UbbxAYSrPK_cgdAD&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1920&bih=967

Definitely Rose bay willow herb.
Just wait a couple more days and compare open flowers to link!
