Shirley had a brilliant time thanks, got quite a few ferns, right at bottom of garden, just keep adding some when i see some differant to what i have.

I've never had success with Ferns here. : o ( (

Shirley mine are in dry soil with no goodness in it, and its very dull as no sun gets to it, where i put them it about 3ft wide - 12-14ft long.but its out the way of the rest of garden.

Thanks Carole, I have an area I might try them in again when the bloomin' builders have gone ! : o ( (

Your welcome, think wildlife like it where i've got the ferns aswell.

think mine are in to much sun carol, may move then, one is growing pretty well but other a bit slow, i really like ferns to ;o)

Most ferns like shade ereas, but on saying that Sandra mine are only just unfurling.

yes i tried to put in shade but didnr realise that part got so much sun and now ive chopped the last tree down more sun lol, not all day though. will see

Just see how it goes, i'm giong to try some round pond so they will have two chances they either live or die.

thats true carol, i think as long as they are kept damp it helps, i give mine a really good water each day, more come summer.

11 May, 2010

 

Thats what i do, the other day i put hose pipe on and everything is bone dry again,so will probley get it out again tomorrow.

Glad you had a good day with San . Carole , I have some Ferns in very dry soil in the shade under some trees they appear to be quite happy there and like you say it fills the gap ...

nice ferns i have a couple near my pond..........

12 May, 2010

 

Thanks Holly, think your right Amy ferns seem to thrive in rubbish soil, where no other plants will live.

12 May, 2010

 

wish i had got a couple now carol, i have a patch near my shed, they would fill nicely there;maybe when im back if they have any left

12 May, 2010

 

We could get some if you like and instead of getting fish from division lane we could get them from the one near that garden centre.

12 May, 2010

 

i dont mind carol im easy with whatever you think ;o))

12 May, 2010

 

I'm easy aswell, think there are a few garden centres near division lane and i know there one next to rspca dont know if its any good or not though, see if we are down there we' ll be popping into rspca , but seen some on my A to Z map.will have to toss a coin :o))

12 May, 2010
