How To Plant

Soaking plants overnight or at least several hours prior to planting will do wonders for their growth. In the first year, keep them watered as needed. Do not plant too deep. The buds of the fern need to be just below the surface.

Where To Plant

Filtered shade is often the best, but many varieties can handle full sun.


Do not use fertilizer on native plants.  Fertilized ferns and wildflowers will look burnt and dried out but in fact it is a result of fertilization.
