ID a fern please
« on: August 07, 2011, 02:35:10 PM »
You might guess with my requests I've been to an open garden

Does anyone know this lovely little fern?

When the swifts arrive empty the green house

Asplenium trichomanes is a very useful plant for the Show Bench if you are interested Mark.

Fern class in most SRGC Shows... and of course they can also "fit" in many other classes too.... I think that the same applies for the AGS shows.... there are quite a few talented fern growers I can think of who show their plants.

Wow, Mark.  Beautiful crested form.  Not one I've ever seen before.  Brilliant!
Cheers.
