This is a lovely gently spreading fern that has formed a nice clump in the garden.

Ooooh that would look gorgeous around my pond (s).

Would love to dig you a clump if I ever saw you here :-)

Jacinta D Jacinta D 04 May 2010 22:48:57

Can't see that happening in the near future, unfortunately, Martin. :(

Does it get tall?

Yes, Jacinta, it would look lovely around your ponds.

it would look lovely around my ponds too when ever we get them finished - we can but dream!

18 inches tall young Fran, would love to give you a bit too, but then you are a long way away.

Martin, just looking at my wish list and realised I came home with this fern, am delighted thanks Deborah.

I forgot all about this journal. well done for getting it then Linda

LindaB LindaB 29 June 2010 19:51:08

Yes I was lucky, when I was planting it this morning I looked at the name and thought that sounds familiar - looked at my wish list, and there it was (& had reference Martin's May journal) am really chuffed!!

Hi Linda, will send you ferns when my babies get bigger. Fern people should stick together. :-)

Jacinta D Jacinta D 29 June 2010 23:19:51

Martin, I have been trying to get my hands on a shuttlecock fern. But no garden centre that I have visited in recent times sell them. Where can I get one ?

MartinB MartinB 29 June 2010 23:23:22

Send me your address :-)

LindaB LindaB 30 June 2010 18:18:52

Hi Martin, you are very kind, I am slowly building up my collection.
