I absolutely loved last nights section on stumperies. Sublime! I didn't realise just how beautiful "boring" plants such as ferns can be. In the right environment they are stunning. (We already have a good few at home but can't say I've warmed to them, perhaps cos they're all higgeldy piggledy and look as though someone dropped them there and couldnt be bothered to pick them up! I don't know if I'd go the whole hog with full stumperies but this persuaded me to plant more ferns, in as many varieties as I can and just sit back and watch them grow. I bought a lot of flowering plants last year as the property I live in is surrounded by trees, has tree borders and is green, green and green however I've now seen how lovely green can be so why not just go with the whole "in its own environment" thing and not worry so much with "flowering beauties".
