Weed?

Mystery weed

We haven’t weeded the strawberry patch yet. It seemed to be doing just fine in its natural state, so we focused on clearing the opposite end of the allotment to install the produce we’ve grown ourselves.

However the strawberry patch is full of a very particular kind of plant – long thin oval furry leaves and tall spines with clusters of red flowers on the top. Help a gardening novice out here – what are these??
