Before it was Gwandanaland

This is a pre-historic photo (you know pre-digital cameras) of my little garden before it became a cretaceous garden. Note the two original tree fern inhabitants It had a open wooden lattice cover, now removed, there are now 5 soft tree ferns to provide a more natural replacement shade canopy.

[The "BLACK PLASTIC WEED MAT" MYTH: Also note nothing else is in the garden, nothing would grow. This was mainly due the old fashion idea of using black plastic and pinebark to stop the weeds. Well its stopped the weeds and everything else by killing the soil structure (if it had any) Only the tree ferns survived, because they could get what they needed via their aerial root trunks]
