WS: The Troserch woods and the garden of Susan Lewis
August 22 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Also in 2014 we hosted a BPS National Meeting. One of the days was particularly successful but unfortunately few local members were able to attend and so we have arranged to repeat the event.
For the Troserch Woods we will meet at 10.30am. in the village of Allt where a footpath to the woods starts at SN557025. Here we expect to see Dryopteris aemula along with great quantities of many of the commoner woodland ferns of the region and several colonies of the filmy fern Hymenophyllum tunbridgense.
Afterwards we will visit the garden of BPS member Susan Lewis where as those of you who have visited before will know we will find an extensive collection of ferns growing extremely well under her moist conditions. Susan’s address is Maes-y-Deri, Heol Grenig, Glanaman Rhydaman, Sir Gâr, SA18 1YU and directions will be provided in the morning.
A packed lunch plus suitable clothing for the weather and good footwear will be required.
