Wow, Dick. A beautiful present there. Lucky you.
How wonderful to get a present like that! That will keep you busy on this site as we will want a daily update on how it is doing! :)
Dick that little beauty definitely would not survive outside during this kind of weather unless you built a total shelter over it. Not sure which tree fern it is, does it say on the label?
Wow what a wonderful present. Good luck with it Dick
That is a fabulous present, Dick. I wonder does the label 'Victoria' relate to where it was shipped from? My Dicksonia antartic tree ferns had labels with 'shipped from Victoria' and other license information in big letters.
It seems to be like that Rachel.
You are right Rachel. It could have come from Tasmania or south east Australia, which shows that it from the hardiest area and that it is probably Dicksonia Antarctica.
Rachel and Martin , I found a label in the pot with the tree fern. You are correct. The name is Dicksonia Antarctica. it says soft tree fern boomvaren. There are instructions going with it. I have it inside in an unheated room where it should be safe.
Beautiful present,Dick,,wish you luck with it!!!
It's gorgeous Dick,, what a thoughtful present, and it couldn't have gone to a better home, I'm sure it will bring you much pleasure over the years as it grows. Merry Christmas:-)
