Alison Evans, Blogs Southport Fernery – Big Bertha’s journey! July 3, 2018 Alison Evans Leave a comment I thought it would be fun to follow the progress of a large Cibotium schiedei (christened ‘Big Bertha by Sandra) from RBGE to a new home in Southport Fernery. Waiting to be loaded Just fits in the van Just fits through the door Arrived in Southport in perfect condition This Cyathea needs to be moved to make way for Big Bertha The area cleared and Michael has dug a large planting hole It's not for coming out of the pot - hammer and chisel needed! Still not coming out of the pot! A three-handed job to remove the pot. That root ball is heavy! She's in the ground! Make sure it's in the right position Natalie gets to remove the cling film Aah! Perfect! Big Bertha settling in to her new home.
