    sorry , dont reconize this 100% but it does look like a non edible solanum. I have grown shrubs before from a mixed pack of seed from  Chilterns .To identify the shrubs I have gone to a family run nursery ,checked there shrubs out for the same one . If I could not find a particular shrub I have either shown them a photo or taken in the plant if its in the size of plant pot which yours is still in .

    maybe someone on here reconizes your plant ?

    Looks like Oxalis adenophylla to me.

    Thank you so much nutcutlet, I was racking my brain as to what it could be but now you said that I remember planting it in a container with a perennial wallflower (bowles mauve) last year and the wallflower took over the pot and I never saw the oxalis again!  Now I know what it is ill look forward to seeing it again! image

    Quite  a pretty little plant, I find mine diminish rather than increase but I'm probably pulling them up when I weed

    haha they are very hard to see when they first come up I planted something right over the top of it because I forgot where they were and pulled a few of the first leaves off, luckily it doesn't seem to have harmed it. My Bowles mauve though has flourished since I brought it last year flowering all winter apart from in the snow we had, whethat's snow thawed it started flowering again. I'm very new to gardening but enjoying it immensely.
