Its a lovely one isn't it Spritzhenry, just about to google it as could have sworn last year it died back in winter, but can't for the life of me remember, doesn't show any signs at the minute, so off to google :-)

I think it is officially semi evergreen, pic here

I see you like big bold plants, a nice fern for you would be Blechnum chilense

The BPS is a good society to join for fern info

Thanks for the info Plug, just googled Blechnum chilense, thats a beauty up to 6ft tall too, my sort of plant lol, I think I know what to ask for for christmas now :-), just getting round to planting a few ferns and woodland plants in our small wooded area this one would suit the conditions brilliantly so thanks again :-)
