Can you please help me identify this fern.
I have “Britain’s Ferns” as a Christmas present but am very new to all this !
This fern is still green in January in our Hampshire garden (very chalky soil)
It is about 30cm tall.
This is probably the plant I got the spores from (15 month old Blechnum) There was also a B. nz. Nearby so I’m sure it’s one or the other. The young plants are very vigorous with long and searching roots. Any suggestions much appreciated.
Very keen to identify this fern from spores I was given.
Can you ID this fern please? I got it many years ago from Des Martin in Leicester but he doesn’t seem to have a web site so I can’t contact him to ask. Al I can remember is that it is a coniferous fern – but can’t make any sense out of that . I want to move it to a better spot so that its beautiful spiralling structure is more visible.
The first pic ending on 0909.jpg is the back of the leaf. The other 0906.jpg is of the plant from the front. I rotated & reduced the size of the pics to fit your format.
Really appreciate any help I can get, thank you.
All the best, Laura
A pest, rather than fern identification. Tiny black mites are flourishing on the fronds of a fern wall I created earlier this year. Asplenium scolopendriums are the most heavily affected but they are also present on Pteris species. The leaves feel weak and a bit dried out. The bugs look smaller and legless compared to a black aphid.
Need I worry or will they disappear with the colder temperatures. The wall is pretty sheltered and next to the house so may never get frosted.
What’s the best treatment, if needed.
Hi – could you identify the fern shown in the three attached images. I saw it yesterday, growing amongst Hart’s Tongues and light bramble in a shaded area of a young woodland (mostly Hawthorn) on sloping ground in fairly deep (450mm at least), moist (not wet) soil – Fuller’s Earth type geology with limestone underlying. The Fern was about 250 – 300mm tall. The area is not readily accessible to the public.
this fern is growing in some dead New Zealand sphagnum moss with a Cephalotus follicularis. do u know what it is? many thanks.
