Tonights club night was ferns with Steve Mckee and it was informative, fun and refreshing to hear how Steve collects, propagates and grows his ferns. He was able to provide useful insights into the growing of ferns and use of them as accents. He has been successful with a range of species and enjoys expanding his collection. He tends to treat them in a similar way to bonsai with pruning to aid with leaf size reduction and feeding using tomorite. Not all ferns he has found are hardy to his cost so he is now cautious and provides winter protection for most of his ferns.

Here are a few images of his and others ferns from the evening.
