Unidentified plant

Hello , sorry if this is in the wrong section, but I saw this in my garden and I don't know what it is.


 It has a really tight curl to the stem like a pigs tail 

any help would be appreciated

    Seed pod from a cyclamen?

    After the flower is fertilised, the stem curls to plant the pod in the soil.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Think you're right Fidget, looks very much like a cyclamen seed pod image

  • Ahh now I remember it was a Mother's Day gift from the kids and it was on kitchin window sill. We had a kitchin refit it was "in the way" I rescued it and stuck in the ground to live another day. Thank you for quick reply it was puzzling me, i was waiting for it to flower. I love gardening but have a lousy memory .
