Hardy Ferns



Having spent a few days last month reducing the height of the large shrubs in the tree fern border, see blog entry 22nd February 'Restoring The View' and, after weeding and mulching the soil below them, the gardeners returned this morning to plant the border with ferns. 

Adiantum venustum

The five different genera (types) of hardy ferns were purchased during a visit Fibrex Nurseries Ltd of Pebworth, Stratford-upon-Avon, the chosen ferns are: Adiantum venustum, Dryopteris affinis 'Crispa Gracilis Congesta', Dryopteris affinis, Asplenium scolopendrium Crispum Group, Polypodium cambricum 'Richard Kayse', Polystichum polyblepharum and Polystichum setiferum 'Plumoso-Multilobum'. (For more details and advice about these ferns click on the above Fibrex Nurseries Ltd link).

These ferns, dwarfed by the tall tree ferns in the border, were chosen to provide different foliage, form and texture beneath them and also, who can resist the sight of an unfurling fern frond rising from the soil waking up from its winter sleep and announcing spring is here!
