    A Cyperus grass, more correctly a sedge. There are several hundred species; but you try with C polystachyus or C involucratus.

    I am with South Sun Spot: It’s a sedge. They grow like weeds – well, they are weeds! :)

    Sedges also say something about the soil that you have in the allotment.
    As to being weeds, well it depends on which sedge, there are ornamental sedges for gardens.

    It looks like a beautiful plant. I say stick it in a pot and use it as an ornamental in a container garden.
