Hello, back again with another shrub/tree that needs identifying. Thanks

    Hi All

    Can anyone identify this for me?

    It began to grow in a pot which I purchased for the 'astrantia claret' as I was about to plant out the astrantia, this emerged and I decided to plant out this too as it had a healthy root within the pot, that was last year and it has self seeded profusely and has just started flowering with these white flowers.

    Thanks for that, Dove - a bird or the wind must have dropped a seed in there, image

    When you say big, what sort of size and is is possible or safe to move right to the back of the garden ? It currently resides in a border next to our patio. Thanks.

    It's a very big tree, but you can cut it right down every year to keep it smaller, I believe.

    Thank you for this information - I will keep an eye on it and have the pruners on standby!
