Primrose in full flower on the embankment. No Comments Steve Blacksmith May 3, 2011 at 10:22 pm - Reply It's a native primrose. Much commoner in other parts of the country. Makes you wonder, if they (and the native daffodils which we used to have many sites for) were dug up to sell to gardeners during hard times in the past. Ferns also used to be much more varied locally, and they are recorded as being fair game for the collector during the Victorian Fern Craze. We no longer see Beech Fern or Oak Fern, to name but two. Good news is that the rich diversity of small wall-dwelling ferns is coming back. Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
