  • Polypodium cambricum Richard Kayse

    An ancient fern, discovered by Richard Kayse in 1668, growing on a limestone cliff in South Wales. The plant is sterile, and so all plants in cultivation are divisions of the original plant. This is a beautiful fern, which grows for me on very slightly acid, shaded soil under an apple tree. It dies down for a few weeks in mid-summer, and then sends up new fronds from mid-August, which remain...

    10-15cm in flower, this summer-dormant buttercup produces its white flowers, which become tinged with pink,  in mid to late winter. They are frost hardy, but the flowers can be damaged by inclement weather and they may be better under glass when the flowers open. Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in a generously-sized pot. Plants are usually supplied in summer as dormant roots.

    1.2m-1.4m  A lovely, easy plant which hasn't needed support at all for me.

Prefers sun to part shade, with a well-drained but not too dry, fertile soil.
