What is the leaf of a fern called?

Correct! Wrong!

Some plants, including ferns, cycads and palms, have fronds. Each frond is actually a single large leaf that’s divided into smaller segments. Like a normal leaf each one grows out from a single, central stalk (called a stipe in this case), but it does so as a series of separate blades. These blades can often have complex shapes of their own, but the whole frond is still just one leaf. That means pests or disease can affect the plant’s appearance very rapidly.

What is the approximate population of Bluff?

Correct! Wrong!

The Bluff area was one of the earliest areas of New Zealand where a European presence became established. The first ship known to have entered the harbour was the Perseverance in 1813, in search of flax trading possibilities, with the first European settlers arriving in 1823 or 1824. This is the foundation for the claim that Bluff is the oldest permanent European settlement in the country. However, the missionary settlement at Kerikeri was both earlier and larger. The town was officially called Campbelltown in 1856, became a borough in 1878, and was renamed Bluff in 1917. Today the town is best known for the Bluff Oyster and Food festival held every May – a celebration of the nationally-loved delicacy which includes oyster-opening and -eating competitions.
