Thank you for the photo and message. The shape the plant and the leaves is the same, but the leaf-veining is slightly different, so I'm guessing same family but different type of ash. Either way, a tree in the making.

No worries :)

Have a close up look at the buds on yours, if it is an Ash they have quite distinctive grey buds.

Other thought was an Alder.

Sorry, but I don't think it is Alder. Your plant has opposite leaves, but Alder has alternate leaves

I just took a photo of our Campsis radicans.....

You're right, the leaves on mine are opposite. It could well be Campsis radicans, blown in from somewhere, and taken root in bright shade. Quite a vigorous climber, by the look of the photos online. Thanks!

Just in case it is a Campsis, I would be tempted to put it in a biggish pot I think, while it is small. It would be easier to do now. Then you could watch it, and decide where to grow it on when and if it does well.

It would be good if you could let us know of the progress please :)
