One or two ferns?
« on: May 31, 2020, 03:39:38 PM »
Brian came to pot up a fern and as I looked at it I wasn't sure if there aren't 2 ferns in the pot. However after looking at my closeups I'm reverting to one fern with older and younger fronds. What can you see.

Thanks to all the people who looked at this thread. I think I will have to repost it in the Fern section.

Are they native Shelagh? They look a bit like Cystopteris.

Yes Ian if it's just one fern it's Cystopteris fragilis.
