Iv had this plant 3 years, in a warm sunny, southerly facing flower bed in lincolnshire, and this is the first year it's done anything special. Previous years it's been eaten till it was a skeleton on leaf veins. This year iv been spraying everything with bi carb, and this plant hasnt been eaten, and instead produced this pod. Anyone any ideas, please? Leaves are 4-6 inch round and flat, green o the top and red underneath. Many thanks

The pod looks like a gal. The plant looks like Ligularia.

I support the Ligularia ID (L dentata perhaps). Can you cut open the gall structure to confirm gall ID. That are such a cool gall, I notice you got more than one there. I would encourage that gall to exist if I could, if they are that cool.
The only gall that I fond of are gall of "makomotake" (Zizania latifolia) since it is edible and tasty. Other galls "no!!"... but this one is cool
