The wild flower meadow in front of the World Museum Liverpool already has about 200 species, including five fern species. Today we started to expand the fern collection with five more British native species. The meadow has some shady and damp areas, also some calcareous parts, so we should be able to introduce a range of native ferns – both to look good, and to be a resource for the fern identification workshops that we hold in the Botany Department of the Museum.
I took this photo a while ago but have only just got round to posting it. There is a fourth new plant just to the right of the parent plant. When I checked a couple of days ago, all the new plants seem to be thriving.
