Southport Fernery news

Everything is growing very well in the Fernery, thanks to the constant attention from Gary and Sandra, and the heating system not failing last Winter. Michael and I went in on 7th April for the first time since last December, and were quite overwhelmed by the fantastic lush growth all around!

The weeds are growing well too – Gary tackled the south-west corner at the top of the wall by removing all the weeds, and the spent, dusty soil from the pockets. Then new compost and a Woodwardia in the deep pocket, transformation complete! Before and after photos below.


We are hoping to re-open the Fernery to the public from 17th May. BPS members – if you are thinking of travelling to see the Fernery, please let me know on so that we can make sure it is open and there is someone there to greet you.
