    The stocking of the Fernery (and immediate surrounding area - shhh don't tell MrsG) continues. This is the latest to be planted, I think it's a little cracker.

    Arachnoides simplicior 'Variegata', also know a the Japanese Variegated Holly Fern and the East Indian Variegated Shield Fern, I suppose any combination thereof will do too. It seems this one will be happy on the drier side.



    Now to find a bamboo fern

    Well, MrsG let me go out alone to a Plant Fair. Considering the temptation I didn't do so bad, just five new ferns.
    The first three I have potted up in square and round long toms to see how things go. The Dryopteris sieboldii was a distinctive three crowns so there's now a couple of square pots of that. The large Bamboo Fern I was hoping to split but on knocking out it's not at that stage yet Two of the fronds were damaged in transit so they've been "assisted" with a couple of wooden BBQ skewers

    1 & 2. Dryopteris sieboldii, Japanese Wood Fern

    3. Coniogramme japonica flavo-maculata, Bamboo Fern

    4. Blechnum spicant, Deer Fern




    With these two the scale is just wrong. The Asplenium is far larger than the Polystichum, the latter of which I hope will split when I knock it out tomorrow

    Top, Asplenium scolopendrium 'Kayes Lacerated', Crispy Hart's Tongue Fern

    Bottom. Polystichum setiferum congestum, Soft Shield fern

    A few more additions. Some Dryopteris that were begging me to buy them.

    1. Dryopteris affinis cristata 'The King'

    2. Dryopteris affinis 'Crispa'

    3. Dryopteris erythrosora

    4. Dryopteris erythrosora, new frond



    It's unfair when they have a very low price on them, what chance do I have to resist?

    The Fernery doesn't quite look the same anymore. the ferns are really taking off and trying to fill every bit of air space. I'll need to try to get in there and trim off some of the old fronds.

    Here's a sample of some of the new growth.

    Ferns can be veritable weeds in their own right. Quite the lush growth you have there.
