Visit to Tim Brocks garden and its environs

Visit to Tim Brocks garden and its environs, Tregaron, Ceredigion
Many Regional Group members will have met Tim as, since moving to South Wales from Hampshire two years ago, he has joined us on several meetings. An important part of his move was to bring with him his National Collection of Asplenium scolopendrium cultivars which we will be able to enjoy on our visit. It was reading an article by Tim in the 2009 edition of Pteridologist describing his collection, then still in Hampshire, which led us to visit and to find the best arranged and labelled National Collection we can recall seeing. Since then you may have seen several articles by him describing his ongoing hybridisation experiments. He clearly chose his new home wisely as the surrounding area is rich in ferns and we will have the opportunity to spend some time exploring the locality.
Meeting at 10.30 at Tim’s house – Delfryn, Pentre Rhew, Llanddewi Brefi, Tregaron, SY25 6SB. SN665547. Packed lunch required.
