Lovely colour :o)

I thought it was nice too Sticki - thank you!
No such luck P.....to be fair to her - the 3 she brought 2 were the same and I already have similar. She means well! She knows that I am trying to get things to grow round the side of the extention where there is no sun at all and at the ''much cheapness'' it was little to loose!

Ferns are great. They look after themselves and just get on with pushing up pretty fronds. That's a pretty one.

lovely fern!!!

Oh nice, Scottish! Does it get quite big?

7 May, 2012

 

Karen....it gets between 15 and 50cm will depend on how happy it is. I may have to give it a wee bit protection with some straw in the winter but that's not a problem.

I was looking at some ferns yesterday because that's another little 'area' I'm thinking about...luckily, they were so scraggy that I wasn't really tempted.

I do like this one - I'll have to look out for it! :))

Pity you don't have Morrisons there....they are selling ferns at £1.75 - mum brought home another 2 today (for the pond area - she tells me)

8 May, 2012

 

impossible to resist Morrisons plants.

Have a look at this one Scottish

Athyrium niponicum "Ursula's Red"

and Athyrium "Vidalii"

8 May, 2012

 

Ive got Athyrium niponicum already P...one is still in a pot - not decided where too put it and the other was not liking where I had planted it - so it's been moved too see if it improves!
The other one looks very nice - did you see that in Morrisons? My favourite nursery has them in stock for £7.50

8 May, 2012

 

Not Morrisons I am afraid..Took note of them at a gardencentre the other day. Think they were £6.50

8 May, 2012

 

Thank you for bringing it to my attention P - not that I need much persuasion to go visit Mr Carruthers :)))

It's good that your mum gives you things, Scottish!

...and she has a vision for your garden ;))

It was divisions of all my mum's plants that started my gardening fetish...she was a garden devil...

...but now she has very expensive artificial flowers 'planted' in pots, everywhere...to save work...!

Please, please don't let it be true that daughters don't always turn into their mothers!!!!

8 May, 2012

 

Don't say that Karen....I couldnae bare it!!!!

8 May, 2012

 

Doesn't bear thinking about, Scottish............!!! ;)

lol girls :) Nice fern!

12 May, 2012

 

Hallo Scottish, love the fern, anyone know the name? We did have a few. Only have one tree fern left now, had to put it in a pot to rescue it. Its just beginning to unfurl now.

14 May, 2012

 

The name of it is Polypodium scouleri - it's at the top of the page Kentish belle. I love ferns - tree ferns being my fav - did pay quite a few pennies for one many years ago - but it didn't last the winter despite being lovingly wrapped up and stored away!
You must be dead chuffed your tree fern is alive - I know I would be! How come you lost your other ferns - I think most of the common ones are pretty hardy - or did you have some fancy tropical ones?

14 May, 2012

 

I love this fern Scottish! :))

14 May, 2012

 

IT likes sun Karen!! You were looking for one that enjoys the sun were you not?

14 May, 2012

 

Oh, that's good. Yes, I was! Thank you Scottish!

15 May, 2012

 

Thats a lovely one, I'm looking for a few new ones too, we're gradually clearing and planting a small wooded area, I'm off to Morrisons now !!!!! :-)

16 May, 2012

 

You'll get lots there Simbad and at great prices :)
