New shade lovers for the Library

New shade lovers for the Library

One of the aims of the Friends is to make the Library as attractive as possible. One of our regular activities is the monthly garden gang which has now been going for three years. We’ve planted the gardens behind and around the Library and we weed, water, litter-pick and generally keep an eye on things.

Today we planted two new shade-lovers in the small beds just outside the door from the Library into the back garden.

The one pictured above is a Korean rock fern (Polystichium tsussimense) and the one below is a Hart’s tongue fern (Asplenim scolopendrium).

Hart's tongue fern

They are both evergreen and will be of interest throughout the year. They both like part or full shade so we think they’re in the right spot!

Look out for them when you next visit the Library!
