Strong plant Kev, I have already said it once, normal this temperature is the death blow, especially if it is so cold all night!

February is historically our coldest month this fern needs to stop growing now today's 14c will not help with that fact though

I think that fern is having an identity crisis!

Quite remarkable! I wonder if it might actually be that other cooperi-a-lke that was doing the rounds a few years ago (but never quite made it to SE Essex!). Steve Pope had it, for example.

Amazing cooperi! Mine are tucked up in the polyhouse dreading the forthcoming cold spell. You're not leaving it out are you Kev?

My cooperi was out unprotected and got -4, some slight damage on one leaf but that's it so far, its doing much better than the Australis which is going to lose most of its leaves,

Mark you must have your fern in a good microclimate as -1c burns my leaves and the next freeze brown's them all off.
Mine is still growing but I think this next week will kill the new croziers. :cry:
