Our local garden centre has Ecclefechan Tart as a regular in their tea shop. It looks like a heart attack in a pastry case. But delicious...

 A lot of Scottish food answers that description, Anne    ::)  :D

That sounds like a perfect description for the Bookeroo, Anne!  LOL.  (Although Mr Nicholson would obviously prefer 'nut' to 'pastry').

Yup!   ;D

Hello again
has anyone experience with continentale Gymnocarpium?
I guess I just have anywhere calcareous soil, no or little humus. For this reason the
selection to ferns is restricted.
I'm looking for something larger ferns around the stone wall to plant.

Greetings

Bernd,
Gymnocarpium robertianum would be one for alkaline soils.
Here:
Cystopteris dickeana
Cystopteris fragilis
Gymnocarpium dryopteris
Stegnogramma pozoi

Oh, they look very good. Thanks for the info!  ;D
Gymnocarpium continentale I could get the other day. Let's see if he likes it.
G. robertianum I've bookmarked me. - The wall is great;-)

Anne,
Thankyou. Alot of the rustybacks fell by the wayside...
The Cryptogramma was a division of a cultivated plant given to me when I was in Perthshire last month, and is much treasured.
Saw many special ferns: Botrychium lunaria; Polystichum lonchitis; amongst others.
