can anybody recommend a large fern native to the British Isles. The Australian Fern is too big for my needs.
Dryopteris filix mas gets fairly large, fronds up to 5 feet long.
Thanks, that sounds good to me.
Scariff, County Clare, Ireland
The biggest native fern is Osmunda regalis, the Royal Fern - up to 2m tall. It likes wet soil.
