Winter in South Australia has been cold, but sadly for all gardeners and farmers, very dry. I have been a bit slack with the blogging and the website, but today have added several months newsletters to the Members page.
A new fern handbook is close to being available for members and will possibly be made available for sale to non-members at displays and talks given by the Fern Society.
Tonight we have our monthly meeting at Adelaide High School and we are looking forward to hearing from Nadia & Paul from Red Centre Enterprises. I will post a blog about their talk over the weekend.
The display genus tonight is Fern of Your Choice which will make for an interesting and varied display.
The Fern Society is also looking at being one of garden societies with a display at this years Royal Adelaide Show. This is a new venture for the Royal Show Society to encourage the public to reinvest in the healthy past time of getting their hands dirty and absorbing some much needed Vitamin D into their systems.
Keep an eye on the blog for updates regarding this.
The 'real' fern grower in the house is busy re-potting some ferns he received from Heaton's Fern Nursery in Queensland this week (always makes him happy when this happens!).
