Friend or foe?
Spotted this alongside my Astilbes. Going by the amount of growth it's quickly put on I'm thinking it maybe a bit of a thug that I need to remove? There again it could be something that's self seeded that I don't recognise. Any ideas please?
Looks a little like Elder ; if not wanted then discard .
I agree with
that looks like the native Common Elder Sambucus Nigra.
Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
Many thanks both. It's certainly not in the right place and not something I really want anyway so I'm afraid it's days are numbered! 😖
