    This looks like seedlings of Himalayan Honeysuckle - Leycesteria formosa. Probably a blackbird has deposited the seeds after eating them. Very attractive racemes of blackcurrant coloured flowers, followed by dark fruits.

    Yes, it is one of those, and beautiful too. Birds, esp. blackbirds love the berries. Enjoy image

    I sowed some saved campanula seeds in a pot and the two plants that have come up are those! Definitely not campanulas. Wondered what they were, so thank you. I have a Leycesteria in the garden.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
