There’s a a ribbon of original rainforest in a gully by a friend’s house in Southern Australia. Tree ferns grow here in their natural habitat. It’s shaded, cool and has even been covered with snow.
(Although not for too long!) But the temperatures frequently range from a few degrees Celsius up to 35 degrees or more. That’s 30-100 degrees Fahrenheit – within the ranges of many British, Northern European or North American gardens.
