We are very pleased to introduce the new owners of Ascog Hall Fernery on the Isle of Bute, Michael and Karin Burke. They are very enthusiastic about renovating and maintaining the historic structure. They have grand plans for keeping the gardens in good condition, keeping them open to the public and learning about the cultivation of ferns.
In May 2014 Karin and Michael graciously hosted a group of Scottish BPS members, including fern experts, Sadie Barber and Andy Ensoll from RBGE. This gave us an opportunity to get acquainted and to discuss the best care for the ferns.
To visit them see their new website:
