Do you know what this could be?

Malcolm has grown this from seed but can't remember what it is. Not had much success with his seeds this year but this one suddenly started sprouting and we've moved it from pots into the ground and it's flourishing.

Yep, they're plants.
Begonia?

No, not begonias - but quite honestly I don't know what they are, just what they're not! Rather looks like purple basil, but you'd be able to tell by the smell. Mia may well have some idea but I will look in my book in the morning and see if I can find it. Only one I know with that type/colour leaves is that thing that has sort of dangling dark maroon tassel-like flower racemes.

Could they be a 'New Guinea Busy Lizzie' by any chance?

That's it. That's what I was trying to think of. Busy Lizzies. Nice one Scatty. I knew I recognised the leaf, just couldn't get brain in gear, lol.
