hi got a new plant growing in my garden dropped by the birds, started growing and i thought it was a potato plant same size and shaped leaves and the white coloured flower, but then small green bunches of green berries started to grow, i then thought it looked like a tomato plant but the berries only grow to about 10mm diameter and then go black, its in south wales would love to know what it is,



Hi Guest it could well be a potato plant those are the poisonous fruits you are seeing. Dig it up and you may find some potatoes!

Any chance of a photo? It makes identification so much easier.

Probably Solanum nigrum if the berries are black. Its an annual weed of cultivation.
