    Very impressive - none at coastal mainland bc yet

    QUESTIONS - do you know which name you have?

    How old is the plant?

    What material is it planted in?

    Thank you

    Guelph Millenium - My Yahoo Search Results

    Guelph Millennium from U of Guelph. About 11 plants, roots. About 12 years old.
    Planted about a foot deep in sand and good compost, a bit of coconut fiber. I give a sprinkle of fertilizer yearly NPN.
    Cut for about a 30 day period and quit about 15 of July and let the ferns grow for next year.
    Takes about 3 years to establish.
