General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.

Athyrium Ghost - Fern

Ferns prefer soil that is well-drained and rich in organic matter. Just think about woodland conditions, lots of mulch, humus rich dirt, shade, and moist conditions are what ferns like best. Mulch will help them thrive. Plant in spring or early summer and like all new plantings water immediately and deeply. Plants growing during a period of drought will require supplemental moisture so ensure that you water them frequently slowly and deeply when required. Divide plants as needed every three or four years in spring. Plants will do best in soil that has a slight acidic to neutral PH. Avoid compaction from foot traffic and mowing by planting in garden beds, among companion plants and providing rock or paths for foot traffic.
