In my opinion this firewood is perfect!

(but I am biased)

If you only burn this wood for the

perfume alone you will be in

for a treat - it is knock out

Strong yellow flames, with occasional

flames of purple

Terrific heat and good charcoal

Don't take my word for this

firewood - do try it

Hornbeam makes a very colourful

fire with purple, pink, yellow and an

occasional bright blue flame

base for barbecues and

definitely one to sit in front of

and watch the flames.
