Last week, Circles Alternative Education planted a mixture of UK native ferns in the Bell Mead garden – those included Broad buckler, Lady Fern, Harts-Tongue, Soft shield Fern and Male Fern.
The Lady fern and the Male ferns are meant to help each other pollinate and grow – they have already been pollinated, but as the weather stayed cold for a long time this year, the Male ferns have been delayed on the order. These should follow in 1-2 weeks’ time to allow them to grow to a size which is viable for travelling; once they arrive they will also be planted in the area.
IFPC would like to ask the residents to please be mindful of the plants, not pull or ruin them and to allow them to establish and grow.
