Thanks for the replies.
They are still relatively small plants.
So I will fleece them if it gets below freezing

I also have a Woodwardia orientalis, but I will be bringing that one indoors.


I've had a Woodwardia orientalis outdoors in Peterborough since 2013 with no protection, and it's never had anything but very minor frost damage... I would say it's at least hardy in all but the worst UK winters. It's a very nice plant, and very easy to propagate from bulbils...

Rowan,
All the books say that it is not hardy in the UK
I have sowed loads of the bulbils. So I guess I do have spare to experiment with.
