Peter knows this area well, and apart from the rich Wealden flora early date, we can expect some surprises. Janet Bond has kindly agreed to provide us with tea after the meeting, in her most delightful garden with a number of ferns and lots of interesting flowers and trees.

The North of Ireland

July 7 - July 9

There has not been a BPS trip to the North of Ireland since 1994, so when Hazel suggested that Glen Ariff in County Antrim was a very ferny place to go, the Meetings sub-committee welcomed her suggestion. The arrangements are still provisional, but we plan to follow Glen Ariff with two further days in County Donegal and County Fermanagh, probably based in Donegal town. We are aiming to see lots of interesting ferns including Polystichum lonchitis, hybrid equiseta, and Trichomanes…

SW&B: Pilwort survey in Powys

August 31 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

You may have seen the article by Fred Rumsey “A new national Pillwort Survey” in the 2015 edition of The Pteridologist Vol 6 Part 2 p161. He was encouraging Regional Groups to survey the species in their areas and, as we knew that parts of Wales were hot-spots for the species, we contacted him and received a list of sites. We also joined a Pillwort hunting weekend in the New Forest and “got our eyes in”. Since then we’ve visited…

SE: Autumn end of season meeting

October 21 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm

In the morning we will visit Wealden woods on the Isle of Oxney, near Rye. The Society has not been here before and there are secluded woods here which are surprisingly home to Dryopteris aemula among others. We have booked the small hall by the recreation ground in Appledore for our traditional end-of-season get-together, where we will see presentations of the year’s fern activities, home and abroad. Please also bring along any other items of fern interest.
