They are lovely arnt they, this is the first time i have grown them i have 4 different ones now, including a shuttlecock fern which i am told can get really big - i hope so could do with some hieght where it is planted - i am really more of a flower person, but i have two areas in this newish garden that are perfect for them and after all it is always best to garden alonside nature rather than against it
