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 President@ebps.org.uk so that we can make sure it is open and there is someone there to greet you.
