Fern study group
The Fern study group studies the cultivation and propagation of Australian native ferns so that more species could be seen in gardens. It also aims to examine the growing requirements of the various species to improve their reliability. As in all study groups, the members' work is mainly carried out in their own homes and gardens and in their own spare time.
The Study Group's newsletters document reports from members into cultivation issues, propagation methods and natural occurrences of different species. The group also organises field trips to natural areas to observe and record ferns growing in the wild as well as trips to members' gardens.
For more information about this study group, please see the ANPSA site: http://anpsa.org.au/fernSG/index.html
Study Groups focus on researching and learning about specific Australian plants (usually a genus or a related group of genera).
Our plant database has profiles of many such plants for your garden. See here for the plant database.
