I am not a knowledgeable gardener but try my best.
When this plant started growing a good few months ago I wasn’t sure if it was a weed or something I had planted last year. I have let it grow a bit.
can anybody ID it please?
Could it be a fuschia?

Looks like a fuchsia to me, it's about to flower so you'll soon see!

Yes, it’s a Fuchsia

Fuchsia, named after Leonhart Fuchs, physician and botanist, who published a Herbal in 1542. Hence Fuchsia (not Fuschia)

Thank you for your replies.
I will now remember how to spell fuchsia correctly! Will post a photo once it’s in flower.
