Went to the small strip of woodland at the back of the property, looking for ferns…sadly, only found a couple of tiny maidenhair ferns, but I decided to take one & hope for the best. I was pleasantly surprised to find an enormous patch of lamium spreading out over at least half of the woodland floor, so took three robust specimens, and an arisaema.
They’re now in their new home, the shade garden at the upper edge of the property, under the trees. I dug about 15 gallons of humus from an old slash pile & loaded them up with it, so it would feel like home. :-)
