    Yes, it's Leycesteria formosa (Himalayan Nutmeg)
    I have it in my garden thanks to the birds.
    You can cut it right back to the ground and it will re-grow, or just give it a trim - up to you depending on how tall you want it.
    The berries do taste of nutmeg, but quite astringent

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
