I started gherkin seeds in small pots, the seed was old, I think something else must have invaded the pots, they are now in the garden and growing strong , but looking very much like woody nightshade to me, somebody please help, I don’t want to pull them up, only to find they are some kind of wierd gherkin. The flowers are small white, with orange centre. berries are in clusters and green at the moment, leaves are pointed and serrated.
