Its Nooky wood.

They do look good in the right setting but for me they have become a rampant nuisance in my garden. At present I am thinning them as they die off.

Anne, behave yourself. Put them in an Asda bag with a bit of water, or an M&S bag if you feel the need to impress, then just hang them on the railings at the plantation gates. I'll look out for them and find them a new home. I'll then take a photo of them and submit it to P.A.D. How does that sound? Oh! Wait, perhaps you live in Billericay?, or Thunder Bay even?

Sorry about that Alan, you probably have it a little bit warmer during the winter months.
