This plant has started to grow with my small rise bush
I don’t think it’s a rose
Anyone have a clue what it is

Seems like it’s a potato according to an online search that looks pretty accurate

Yes, they grow from peelings as long as there`s an eye there, and the peelings are thick enough. My grandparents were not at all well off, and always grew them like that ! It will be interesting to see what sort of crop you get :)

I dig a trench for my runner beans which I fill with kitchen waste (no cooked food). I usually get potatoes and tomatoes coming through. I just pull them out so they don’t compete with the beans :)

I threw some store bought potatoes to see if they we going to go to seed and they did not they just rotted, the peelings are from the same batch of potatoes and have took off, they are beating the seed potato’s I purchased by a long margin, I have received hurried them so we will see how it goes

Often potatoes bought from the supermarkets, have been packed in plastic bags. Within a few days in the home, these will start to sprout. Just rub the shoots off before cooking. Also the spuds can be planted. For many gardeners, this a lot cheaper than buying seed potatoes.

Hello Woollie. Yes they will grow and produce. When I used to grow veg with my father, times were hard and we'd often get the local greengrocer to save us some of the smaller spuds that customers didn't want. Also resonable sized tubers, we would cut in half, provided both halves had an eye.
Apologies, my friend, but I seem to have memory loss asto you. Are PM's available on this site?
