Just a few of my ferns, some unfurling nicely and others preparing to.
My two tree ferns are still ‘sleeping’ at the moment, hopefully they’ll spring in to action soon!

I love the way ferns unfurl. The frond is called a crozier as it starts to unfurl. They are very architectural aren't they? Need to get in and cut some of the old ones off before the new ones strat.

A good selection, like the last one.

You can't be cross with new fern fronds can you? What a joy they are.

I would like to grow more ferns but they're not keen on our garden. Yours are attractive specimens.

Think you already know I'm also a fern lover, they are magical, its fascinating to watch them opening, I have trimmed a couple of mine back already, never had a tree fern but do like them....

Thanks Eileen, I’m glad you reminded me of the name! I couldn’t recall when I posted.
I love to trim of the old tatty fronds and see the new croziers unfurling artistically.

Thank you, Sue! 😊

Very true, I must agree, Sue - they are wonderful to watch as they come to life again!

Thank you, Paul. I’ve trimmed some of it, not much though, as I do like it’s carpeting effect amongst the rockery plants.

Thank you Ange!! I’m pleased you like my collection. I’ve a few more which have been unfurling quite nicely. It’s a pity you aren’t able to grow them successfully as you’d like..would they do well in pots perhaps? Saying that…more pots!!!!!

I do know you’re a firm fern lover, Sue! You’re words are perfect to describe them, they are so magical… I just hope my two tree ferns are ok this year, just a bit slow to get going..
