Thank you Teegee, I took these pics a few years ago and never knew what these strange things were, pretty big too ! I will have to see if any appear this year now. :-)

If they ripen then they contain red seeds which can be sown to produce new trees. However, mice etc. adore them so if you sow them then you need to protect them from vermin. I have managed to get them to germinate and grow, but sadly the harsh winter 3 years ago killed off the babies. They do take a long time to grow to flowering size too.

I agree with nosey about the form of these seeds! The huge magnolia nextdoor has them but not quite that shape!
