Tree Ferns

Tree ferns are slow-growing architectural plants with spreading fronds above a thick trunk. They make striking plants for a sheltered, shady garden.

      I first saw them in South Africa and then Cornwall – they are impressive plants.

      1. Mum and Dad first saw and loved them in Australia 🙂 I was born in Tasmania! They have a potted Dicksonia Antarctica in the garden and it’s fine as long as you cut back the fronds at the right time and wrap it up for winter!

          lucky you being born in Australia, I always wanted to live there, but never managed to get in. Tasmania is on my list for our next visit, hopefully next year!!

    that tree ferns grow natively in South America as well. Maybe you can add that as a destination after Australia.

      For some reason I have never been remotely interested in South America 🙂

      1. For someone as curious as you, it’s curious that South American hasn’t piqued your curiosity.

          Actually even north America didn’t particularly interest me until I went there in 2007. My eyes were always looking east.

      2. After your success with North America, perhaps you’ll venture on to South America.

        2. It’s never too late. On the other hand, there are probably many appealing places closer to home that you haven’t yet visited.
