The Hardy Fern Foundation Create New Fern Display at the Arboretum
Staff from Botanica Landscape and Design, Inc. spent two days at the Graham Visitors Center last week working with Arboretum gardeners to create a new stumpery—an expansion of the Signature Bed fern garden. The stump garden will create a beautiful setting for a new display of ferns. John Van den Meerendonk, owner of Botanica and board president of Hardy Fern Foundation (HFF), supervised the placement of the large western red cedar stumps and logs, and he generously donated the cost of the materials, the transportation, and the labor. This past Saturday, members of the HFF board met at the Visitors Center to plant the ferns. The HFF folks donated their time—and 150 ferns! See photos of the planted display on our Facebook page.
