I got one from PGP last year; the squirrel picked it up for me & Mo passed it on.

It's not started to show yet this year, probably because I look for it at least once a day!

My garden has never been so wet Nigel. We've been here over 20 years and today for the first time ever the greenhouse was partly flooded - couldn't believe my eyes this morning!

I can only say that up here the lack of growth is definitely not to do with dryness.

I hope they're late developers then, because there's still not a sniff of growth, and I'm begining to think about putting something else in the allocated spot. icon_scratch
...I'll give it until the end of May.

Hi

Pteris wallachina is always late in the UK! Mine usually don't appear till June (and this unseasonably cold weather isn't helping either).

Cheers

Valdy

That's reassuring Valdy.

Thanks for your response, I guess I'll give mine a stay of execution for a while longer.

Mick, I hope your greenhouse is drying out a bit now, at least it'll keep the humidity up if you have other ferns there.

Cheers Nigel, it was only flooded for a day or so, but it's still quite damp. The only ferns I keep in it are potted C medularis & D squarrosa over winter, neither very big.

Valdy - thanks, I'm also encouraged to hear that Pteris does not show until late. Still checking for emerging fronds most days though!

Thanks Valdy, I was told it was evergreen! I shan't bother to find one now you have told me that. Many thanks. icon_thumright icon_thumright

Maybe it was Dryopteris wallichiana Jas, a completely different kettle of fish that one, and evergreen for me...
Try it, great fern. :D

Anyway, I went to my local woods today, as you do, and have noticed our native Bracken Pteridium aquilinum is begining to emerge, so perhaps Pteris wallichiana is similar in habit [and perhaps we're all mad for trying it].
