Planted out my rhubarb seedlings and this one looks very different to the rest.

    Not rhubarb, but does look like a dahlia seeding or some thing similar.

    It came from a rhubarb seed packet but i thought it looked different.
    Plantnet app tells me it's gooseberries or deadly nightshade!!!

    Deadly nightshade is good in a crumble isn't it?

    It's definitely not a gooseberry, but it could be a number of other plants.

    Anyone know Cape gooseberry well enough or tomatillo?

    I have replaced it with another seedling now but kept the other plant and transferred it to a pot to see what it turns into.
