We’ve started our fernery

Last month, Friends of Starbank Park were awarded a Community Grant to build a fernery by Keep Scotland Beautiful/Tesco. We’ve really got moving.  The area has been cleared by moving quite a few shrubs and daffodils to elsewhere in the park.  And we planted our first fern this morning, with some very distinguished help!  It is a tree fern, Dicksonia Antarctica, which we were kindly donated.  It’s all very exciting, especially as we’ve started to use our own compost!
