Dotty, I must ask if your Dryopteris filix-mas 'Linearis Polydactyla' is still thriving in your front garden. I bought one a couple of years ago and it is no bigger, possibly smaller, now than when I planted it!

I will have a look and see if its still there!!!! we have a lot of ferns which are always on the move lol! if it is not doing well, take it out and pot it in some ericaceous compost, inspect the roots are they growing in a circle etc?
