May 2019

N: Isle of Wight

May 18 - May 19
Ventnor Botanic Garden, Undercliff Drive
Ventnor, Isle of Wight PO38 1UL United Kingdom
+ Google Map

We had to cancel this meeting last year after Tim Pyner’s untimely death, but following his discovery of Tmesipteris in Ventnor Botanic Garden, we still felt a trip to the island to explore ferns would be worthwhile. BPS last had a trip there in 2006. This time, a weekend would again be spent under the direction of Colin Pope, the local vice-county recorder, with days exploring ferns in Ventnor Botanic Garden and sites around the Ventnor and Shanklin areas.

For a couple of years now, we have been supporting this weekend-long event which showcases a variety of plant societies, and BPS will again have a stand here.

July 27 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
Tim Brock, Delfryn
Pentre Rhew, Ceredigion SY25 6SB
+ Google Map

We last visited Tim and his garden in 2014 when, despite him having not lived there very long, his collection of Asplenium scolopendrium cultivars was already well established. Since then the collection has expanded, not least as a result of his extensive hybridisations, and he has now added a 30` by 10` shade tunnel. Beyond this collection Tim grows a wide range of other ferns and plants. We will meet at his house, Delfryn, Pentre Rhew, Llanddewi Brefi, Tregaron, Ceredigion,…

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…
