Water Garden Ferns

Ferns have taken up residence along the banks of the water race. They decide exactly where to grow and I've let them live a natural life. These ferns are most welcome to spread right along the water's edge. Until they become a nuisance, that is!

Ferns and Phormiums

Their clean green foliage combines beautifully with the large green New Zealand flax (or Phormium). When in gardening doubt, colourwise, plant something green!

 Clean and green.

The above picture is from the archives, before I'd cleaned up and planted the edges of the water race.
