Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Ferns prefer shade and moist well draining soil. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Ferns have shown resistance to deer foraging, which makes them a good choice for shade gardens.
