Care & Size Guidance
A very easy to grow fern. Plant in moist, free draining soil in partial to full shade.
Either cut back the old foliage in early January to allow space for spring bulbs, or leave them in place until April when the new fronds will appear. Any dead or damaged fronds may be carefully removed in order to keep the fern looking its best all year round.
Apply fern fertiliser or a sea weed based fertiliser throughout the growing season to keep the plant at its best.
