Forest of Dean ferns

Posted: 27/06/2015 at 14:52

I live in the Forest of Dean and have quite a few ferns that have established themselves quite happily on their own.  I want to have a lot more as I want my garden to blend into the surroundings. Can anyone give me advice on if I can break the crowns up when dormant?  I've looked a fern sites and all the spore stuff was far too technical for me!  I'll post some photos of the ones that I have shortly if that helps?

Can anyone identify this for me?  It was in my garden when I moved here and I want to cut it back a bit as it's not doing much.  It goes a little bit pink tinged at the end of Summer.  Thanks in advance!

Thanks Victoria Sponge!  I think your right, I've no idea where it came from as I didn't buy it!

Thanks Firecracker!  I do admire your retirement project though!  Pics please!

 

What do you carry you hand tools around in?

Posted: 13/06/2015 at 09:27

I use the retractable lanyards from work - usually used for a security pass in offices.

I work 30 miles from home, so my 'proper' gardening only happens at the weekend.  Does anyone else fall back in love with their patch on a Saturday morning?
