This has been growing in a pot next to a Clematis for a little while, I've just separated them today as the Clematis was suffering. I didn't plant it, it just came up. We do have a small apple tree in our garden so hoping it's grown from a seed of that but I think I might be being optimistic. Bit worried it could be nightshade? Any help appreciated!

    Hi there. Its definitely not nightshade but its too anonymous to hazard a guess as to what it is. The leaves look magnolia like but then again it could be an apple. Wait to see if it flowers image

    I'm pretty sure it's a willow sapling. The bark, the leaf shape and that hint of orange in the leaves is all willow

  • I'd be happy with any of those, thanks so much!

    As long as its safe with a little one around I'm happy to wait and see what it does ?
