    I LOVE hanging ferns!

    OCTOBER 1, 2012 Have a Look at Some of my Staghorn Fern Collection | I simply love ferns and over the years, I have amassed quite a collection. I find it amazing that there are more than 12,000 different species of these non-flowering perennials and I love the fact that ferns were some of the first plants on earth, first appearing in the fossil record 360 million years ago! Ferns are so versatile for both planting in pots and in the landscape. I feel fortunate to have large greenhouses in which many tropical varieties can survive the harsh winters of the northeast. One of my favorite types of fern, and probably one of the most unusual is the staghorn. There are several species of staghorn ferns, but the members of the genus Platycerium, have fronds that are antler-like in appearance, thus their name. | The covered porch on the side of my house that overlooks the farm is the perfect place to hang big baskets of ferns, in particular, Boston ferns and staghorn ferns.
