 I took a cutting to the local garden centre, they said it was a bottle brush, its nothing like the bottle brushes I saw when I lived in Australia and som far it doesn't have any brushes on it.

    that's what it looks like to me though.

    There are lots of different ones. Callistemon. Wikipedia says there are 34 species.

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Yes, it's definitely a bottlebrush. Callistemon citrinus if the leaves smell lemony, probably.

    Lord, I can write,  but I can't read. I can be seen (I think), but I can't see. Like some sort of party game this.

    it is a party game wb, but I think a lot of the players have got fed up and gone home.
