Caring and Maintenance

Ferns are hardy, easy-to-grow perennials which require little maintenance. During the hot summer months, regular watering is recommended. Additional fertilization is not necessary if it has been spread with mulch. Young specimens should be divided and replanted in late winter or early spring to establish their roots. Cut back faded stems in early spring.


  • Plant spreading: up to 1.2m
Plant in a cool, lightly shaded environment, in moist but well-drained soil. If planted in full sun or dry shade, make sure to water and mulch regularly.

Ferns have impressed with their simplicity and elegance for a long time. They bring life to dark corners of the garden, where most other plants would fail. In open areas, ferns look best in rock gardens and under trees, perfectly complementing its undergrowth. They can also be planted at the edges of water channels, where delicate leaves will be reflected by flowing water, adding a touch of magic and charm to the area. The foliage of ferns stay evergreen or turn into attractive red or russet hues through the winter months. Ferns are good companion plants of hostas, lilies of the valley, grasses, primroses and anemones.

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
