Ooops!


Correct spelling Dicksonia antarctica.


Quote wiki....."The fern grows on damp, sheltered woodland slopes and moist gullies."

Fern

Ferns can be found all over the world...not just the tropics.


It looks like one of the tender ones that needs shelter to survive a winter in the UK.


A cold winter will kill it if it is not protected.


Possibly Dickinsonia antartica.

I am stumped too. A pic of the flower would have been helpful.


This is a very good, very active forum in USA.

update to tree id

Agree with Borderline...virtually impossible to id from a single acorn.


Even autumn leaves found under the tree would help with id.


Try to find  an acorn still in the cup...that would also help.

Wollemi Pine Plant

Strange question.


Normally we are asked how to look after plants.


Cost rather depends on the size.


They are expensive to buy. That is a very generous gift.


Wollemia nobilis   has a fascinating story.


The first live specimen was only discovered in Australia in 1994. by Mr Noble
