Garden Fossil in Hertfordshire

I turned this fossil up in the garden over the weekend. It looks like a vegetative fossil rather than animal. It seems to be built up of six sided cells in rows towards a pointed end (damaged to one side). It looks as though it fractured when it was first laid down since the cellular structure appears on the surface of the fracture. Is it a seed head? Any ideas on what t could be and possible age? Are there any similar and possibly more complete fossils at the NHM which we could come and see. Also any artists impressions of the original plant.
