This is the seed pod, my next door neighbour gave it us to guess what it is, I am thinking it is a clematis but not sure
6cms big length 1cm and small bit in width can't split it too hard
It's not clematis. A tree, not a native one, would be my guess
Maybe I will plant in a pot see what comes up
Good idea Gg
It could be a scale from a pine tree are there any near you so you can get an idea the scales are all similar. I have just enlarged the photo and it looks like the seed is still intact. So I would take a chance and plant it up. Maybe not do anything till next year then you will see something like a mini bottle brush !
Sounds daft but is it like a sliver , is it flat. ?
How many have you got, 3? or is it all the same one. You can see a seed in there, if you have more than one you could split it with a knife and see if the black seed is in there. All the conifers in our garden are from seeds and cuttings, dad would pick them up on forest walks.
Think I have found it
looked up tree seeds on google and looked at images found this seed looks the same
