This set itself in a pot and I'm wondering what it could be. I did think blackthorn initially but not sure the leaves are right. PS - picture taken in the dark.

    Thank you nut image I might find a place for it in the garden if it doesn't get too big.

    Yes, a willow; not a distinguished one.  You may regret it if you nurture it!

    From here it looks like Salix caprea - Goat Willow  - one of the first scrubby trees to colonise neglected open land, marsh, tundra etc and turn it into scrub  ............ so unless you have a vast acreage pull it out or you'll regret it

    It will only be neglected if you neglect to pull out every self-sown goat willow that pops up Fishy image

    Photo's a bit blurry - maybe you've got the freezing fog that we're shrouded in? 

    Take a look here - do these look like what you've got? http://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-pussy-willow-goat-willow-great-sallow-salix-caprea-seedling-on-a-pavement-76125438.html

    That looks alarmingly like what I have here Dove, especially the reddish stems.image
