Product Description

Hardy ferns are a hidden gem of the gardening world, and should be grown much more widely. They suffer from the perception that they either take over like Bracken, or need wet spots to grow in - some do, but most don't.

This specially selected trio of ferns are really special though - they are both hardy, and evergreen, so stand out as some of the best to grow, as most die back underground each winter. They will reward you with year-round foliage interest, and are perfect together as a small fernery in the border or in a large pot, or in mixed planters, or cool, deep, moist soils.

This collection includes one each of:

  • Asplenium tricomanes (Maidenhair Spleenwort) - thin ribbony fronds, compact and easy to look after, prefers cool dry shade - great in nooks and crevices of walls. To 20cm height & spread,
  • Asplenium scolopendrium (Harts Tongue Fern) - whorls of long tongue like green leaves stick up proudly 30-40cm or more, increasing in clump size over many years. Sun or shade, wet or dry.
  • Polypodium vulgare - a British native fern and tolerant of most soil and light. Perfect for growing in wall or trees, growing to 30cm tall.

Plant Information

Top Tips

All ferns respond well to a little TLC in their first two years until they are established, so make sure that they get plenty of water and rich, fertile soil.

Care Guide

  • Low maintenance, ferns thrive in dappled, woodland shade so are at their happiest in light shade in moist, fertile soil.
  • Ferns don't normally need fertilising, but do appreciate a leafy humus mulch in the autumn or a dressing of well-rotted manure.
  • Water regulary and from the base of the plant to avoid water sitting in the crown which can encourage rot.
  • Ferms make excellent container plants, happily sitting with other perennials.
  • Pruning is also not normally necessary, but plants benefit from the old fronds being removed in spring as the new ones appear.
