Large number of leaves in rosette, hairy top and underneath. I can't find a good key to decide which thistle it is. If it is nodding thistle I don't want to wait for it to flower for confirmation because I might miss it.

Not as spiky as I would expect but I think this is nodding thistle so get your mattock out
