Hello,

just wondering what this is? It just randomly popped up so probably nothing exciting, but it's got quite a substantial stalk so I wondered whether to move it on to it's own space?

Thanks :)

Hi Ludosan, Welcome!

I don't know what plant that might be ... a gift from the birds perhaps but it appears to have woody looking stem so you may have a nice shrub or tree of some sort. The leaves remind me a bit of Dog Rose (Rosa canina) but that's just a really wild guess on my part. Smiling Hopefully someone will recognize it soon and be able to give you a more exact ID.

Looks like pecan or walnut except for glossy leaves. Maybe some species have them.

Welcome!
It looks like Elder, Sambucus nigra. It does tend to pop up in unexpected areas, especially on land which was previously 'green field.

Birds may also pass seeds from the fruit they eat which can germinate in odd places

Thanks for your replies.
I think I'll move it on somewhere and see what it becomes :)

I think it might be a Fraxinus species.
