Planting Japanese Painted Fern – Effortless Directions

HOW TO PLANT


JAPANESE PAINTED FERN

Effortless Directions

 

Ferns love the shade therefore this perennial plant needs to be planted in a rich, damp soil in partial to full shade. The Japanese painted fern is slow growing, forming clusters that gradually increase in size over a number of years. The fronds are deciduous, dying back when touched by hard frost.

To plant a fern, follow these simple steps:
 
1). Select a shady spot in the garden.

2). Prepare a deep planting hole.
 
3). Fill it with plenty of compost or shredded leaves.
 
4). Add a few small stones to improve drainage, if you like.
 
5). Place the plant in the ground.
 
6). Firm the soil around it.
 
7). Water well.
