I love ferns, especially at this stage when they're unfurling and fresh. Yours are looking great, do you know which type this is, as I'm currently on look out for a new fern.

I think its dryopteris filix-mas, the male fern, there are loads of different varieties, these are at the front of the house where it is very shaded but we put lots of leaf mold on every year and it spreads quickly

Love this picture, ferns are always so attractive at this stage. This is when they eat them in Canada!

Yes! Except if you eat them at the wrong time they can be poisonous!
