FERNS & GUNNERA



The magnificent gunnera (giant rhubarb) needs warm soil on a damp site with lots of space!



The makings of an impressive stumpery.



The woodlice are going to love it in here!

Wow the gunnera is pretty amazing..don't think I've seen it before..looks like something you might see on David Attenborough!
The tree fern looks very much like the dicksonia antarctica we have here?

A stumpery ? That is new to me, but I think its a fantastic idea....
