Holly Hill Woodland Park

I recently re-visited Holly Hill Woodland Park after a gap of nearly 20 years. The Dicksonia antarctica are looking pretty good even in mid-February

They are growing on islands in a lake and I have come to the conclusion that it is not cold but lack of water that kills these beautiful plants
There are other native ferns in this area, Dryopteris dilatata, D. filix-mas, D. affinis, Blechnum spicant, Polystichum setiferum, Asplenium scolopendrium
The park is also interesting as it is considered to have the best known examples in Hampshire of Pulhamite Stonework and Groto
