More ferns:
Davallia canariensis and Woodwardia radicans are not hardy in our climate.
Davallia grows mostly epiphytic on Pinus canariense on the Canary Islands
and is a winter grower in my experience. After planting in Seramis it grows
quite well with me.
Woodsia polystichoides
Pyrrosia lingua
Asplenium fontanum

Rudi you are doing very well with your Cheilanthes. I have grown a couple from spores but found them impossible to keep.

Your Asplenium fontanum looks very much  like ours which does well on the show bench. There is a much more vigorous form about but ours is now 10years old and keeps it shape well.

I love the painted fern it shows up beautifully under the Mespillis/Amelanchia.

We had the Pellaea on the bench but the judges said it wasn't hardy.  Its been in the. garden getting on for 10 years now

Most of these ferns I have grown from spores.

Shelagh, many thanks for the pictures of your beautiful ferns, you must have an enormous
collection of these fine plants. It was not my plan to send you to the garden for taking
pictures, but I like these resulting photos. Asplenium fontanum grows very well in the open
garden, young plants from spores appear on some places, especially on tufa.
Cheilanthes grow without any problems in the open garden, especially on dry walls and
tufa - maybe influenced by the climatic change. A friend raised Cheilanthes persica from
spores of collected plants, so I keep these goodies in the alpine house for the next time.

We have collected quite a few Rudi because of showing them. Then those that don't so well on the show bench or are according to the judges 'not hardy' go in the garden.

I must admit I do like growing them from spores although it takes a long time. We were members of the Pteridological Society for a few years but they are too knowledgeable for us.
