Can anyone identify this plant please? It's about 60 cm tall at present. Thanks.

    Looks a bit like an ash sapling

    I thought ash sapling at first but it's too early for them to be in leaf yet and a closer look made me decide that it is an Elder (elderberry) sapling.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Yes, you are right Bob. I couldn't see enough stem to really decide.

    Yes ... Elder ... Sambuccus nigra

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
