Here is another that I dug out yesterday along with two others. I planted them in a different part of the garden and planted a clematis with each one.

So you transplanted them, yes?

I think you should carve figures into them, like a totem pole. You're a bit of an Red Indian anyway! :)

Such a shame. Like the idea of planting a clematis on it though, might do that with an evergreen one on the large fern that died here.

Transplanted is not the right word. Stood them somewhere else might be. Heartbreaking. Do not think I will do carving, but I have a long life stretching out before me, so maybe in twenty or thirty years I might carve them.

Here's how you carve Tree Ferns.

Martin I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your tree ferns apologies If I am a bit behind on this story but did you  not have them all protected or did that not work - I feel for you - lots of plants in my garden devestated including a hedge of Escallonia which are only in Two years but have been wiped out - they will all have to come out and start again with something hardy

These are some of the many that died last year, some of which i am only removing now. Not sure how the new ones are

Here's hoping they will be ok, not for the want of trying. Good luck, keep us posted.
