Fern ID 2: Bracken
Next easiest fern to identify is Bracken. It's the only one to grow up on a stalk, with fronds branching off up the stem.
It's a world-wide weed, spreading easily by underground rhizomes and hard to eliminate.
We have too much of it already at Filnore. We don't want to eliminate it but it needs controlling.
