What is this plant?

Mary Young asked 10 years ago

Can you id this plant for me please! I didn’t plant it, but we got top soil from a garden centre last year and presume there was a seed there that’s settled in well! It’s about 4 ft tall now and popping seeds all over the place!

This is caper spurge, not real capers, and not edible.

It is a weed that turns up in gardens. Be careful with the white sap as it can cause dermatitis.
