Ferns For Martin

Ferns in El Botanico, Tenerife

Ferns in El Botanico, Tenerife

I have finished uploading my photos of the Botanic Gardens in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, if anyone wants to look at the full set.

I found this photo that I thought might be of interest to our Irish Ferns correspondent, Martin :)

There are a few more ferny photos in the album. I loved the way the Stag's Horn Fern was grown on walls and even out of the side of the 'Orchid Tree' (see a couple of journals down) and there were some gorgeous Cibotium schiedei!

Lovely Rache. I would love a garden like that with lovely wide paths and raising borders on each side planted with ferns of every description. Yay  :-)

I must confess that I only looked carefully at the ferns near the end of my visit but they were spectacular. I wouldn't say no to a garden like that myself! Do you think I could get them to swap?

There is a drill at the base of the wall in this photo with water plants floating in it - that is the green strip at ground level.
