demise of my tree ferns


Hello all you gardeners and contacts I’ve made – it’s about a year since I wrote anything – however I have been busy as usual and as the spring gets under way the momentum of my works gathers pace!! I look at the site from time to time so can see what you have all been up to!!
Well I eventually lost both my tree ferns -1 four foot & one five ft. This week, with the help of a friend I took them out and sawed through them ready for disposal – imagine my surprise when I saw the cut through – the pattern was amazing – a bit Aztec like – I’ve decied to keep all the stumps – about eight in all and place them round the garden as a feature – have a look at the pictures and see what you think – has any one else had this experience? a friend who also lost hers, found the inside of the trunk was just white when sawn through.
Bye for now – mzgreenfingers

beautiful arent they. they remind me of jelly fish when stranded on sand.

thanks for that - I have been looking thro' some of your pictures - what a riot of colour for a shady garden - just shows what can be acheived.

thanks but some are in a sunny border but i have an awful lot of shade. It has opened my eyes to the many plants that are overlooked. a very spring garden in that sense.
