 This may be of interest http://www.buglife.org.uk/bugs-and-habitats/stick-insects - there's a link at the bottom of the page where you can record your sighting. 

Thanks for this link

Sorry about the double post, I don't know how to delete one of them

 

Apparently they live here in the south west, talking to a man that was close by who told me he has them in his garden

Where would we be if we didn't have wildlife, I get so much joy seeing the bees and butterflies and anything else that ventures into my garden. We humans are making their lives very hard, we take away their habitats and just don't seem to care.

I hope i'm helping on a small scale with my garden. I have 2 ponds, bird feeders and plants that will help feed,also Bug hotels and bird boxes

Thanks for the replies,

Dean yours is looking pretty good, is it in the garden or a pot? Thanks for that link as well 

Twinky, that must have been a sight to see, I just love them. There is a national trust house by me that has a lot of them but they are sheltered.

If I get anymore replies, I wont be able to answer til Tues as I'm going grandson cuddling for the weekend

Thanks everyone

Hi, thanks for the replies. 

I have put the straw in the crown when it has been in my greenhouse, just didn't want to risk losing it but it was kept dry in there,I think I might bubble wrap the pot and push it up by a fence, I have a climbing plant at the back of a "Stella" magnolia so I might try and wedge the tree fern in between, failing that I will somehow move it to the greenhouse and bring other plants into the house

Hi,

I have a tree fern in a pot and usually pop it into the greenhouse over winter and so far so good. This year however I may not get it into the gh as it has been potted up into a larger pot, I know they can stand  quite a low drop in temp but should I put the pot into a fleece bag to protect the roots and also I usually pop some straw into the crown to protect new growth so not sure what to do. Would you wrap the whole plant up or not?

I do live in Devon close to the sea so our winter temp doesn't go that low
