Giles,

Hello and welcome to the forum. We do not host photos here, they must be hosted at a third party service and linked to. Look [url=https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3724]here[/url] for two options on hosting photos, choose one.

Giles,

It looks like it might be a Ginseng Ficus a variety of F. microcarpa/F. retusa. Snip off a leaf or small twig and look for a milky sap that is indicative of Ficus. There are numerous threads on this forum concerning them, use the search function to locate them. Here are some useful links.
