Helpful Hints

A fern is a member of a group of vascular plants that reproduce via spores and have neither seeds nor flowers. Keep newly planted ferns well watered for the first growing season while they are becoming established. Plant them in well prepared soil in a protected area. Never let plants growing in 4-inch or smaller pots dry out until they reach a mature size and are well established.
