Well, at least it should be winter green. That is a plus :) It is common in Swe to buy them in pots, to plant them around graves, Perhaps you do the same in UK...

I think you're right Tiz! Thanks for the ID - wonder how it ended up in my conservatory.

It reminds me a lot of Calluna vulgaris, but I am not sure how easy it is to cultivate... I hope it leads you somewhere :)
