Stylish nursery beds


It was something of a surprise to find Australian tree ferns, Dicksonia antarctica, planted into a lawn at Logan Botanic Garden in Scotland.

The fiburous rooted trunk-like rhizomes with frond rosettes from Tasmania are full and semi-shade loving plants yet here they are planted out in full sun in the sunniest corner of Scotland. 

The youth of the plants allows them to be brought on for a while drinking in the sun and their grouping in what is effectively a nursery section of the garden is highly stylish.
