What is this seed?

Posted: 15/02/2014 at 21:11

I still think more likely a pine of some type. There are some very big cones amongst the pines.

Big pine cone?

Monkey puzzle seed perhaps. they come in a big cone that falls apart. seed size would be about right. The cone is about the size of a football.

Yes, Stacey, more money than sense. How much meat could you get for that? I was looking at snowdrop "Wendys gold", but at £15 a bulb, I thought perhaps not.

I don't know how many I have. I walked around the garden and picked up 60 that the birds /squirrels had uprooted, and then planted them 5 to a pot. They can go in gaps or be given away. Those clumps I dug up, did anyone count how many bulbs in a clump?

Wet and windy all day here. Apart from feeding the birds, I have not ventured into the garden.  I like the pics of snowdrops,chicky. There was something in the paper about rare snowdrops being targeted and thieves digging them up in the night.

 I looked at some at Hodsock, but at £7 for two bulbs, I am sticking to my common single ones. (Nivalis?). Every year I dig up a few and spread them around, they provide a nice start to Spring, cheering me up in the short days of late winter.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
