This is my large Tree Fern. It is 6ft and I bought it at Blenheim Palace flower show in 03, for a bargin price of £100. Definately the most expensive plant purchase but not as expensive as some garden centre's charge.

Do you protect this beast in the winter?

His crown is stuffed with straw, leaves and fleece. He has survived the last couple of winters like this and I have my fingers crossed that he will be allright this year. Some of his fronds have gone brown this year.
