This plant has randomly sprouted in my garden! I like it, but want to check that it's not going to be huge and how to best tend it.

Hi, Fofi,
Your plant is a Datura (syn. Brugmansia) and I think yours is specifically Datura stramonium var. tatula (or a cultivar thereof). It is an annual and happily self-seeds which explains it popping up all round your garden. A lovely flower but be warned that all Datura are highly toxic and hallucinogenic.
